TIMES Symposium 2017

The inaugural TIMES Forum Symposium was held on 18th May 2017. We had a fantastic response from speakers and delegates with some very interesting papers from a range of fields. We also did a Twitter Takeover of the University of Birmingham’s Public Engagement Twitter feed, sharing the day’s events with their followers too.
