Following on from the success of the COVID Conversations series, and as part of the celebrations of the Vice Chancellor's Innovation Awards, the category winners will each give a livestream presentation and Q&A session on their work as part of the Innovation Conversations series.  

The series begins at 3.00pm on Friday 4 September 2020 with Early Career winner, Dr Annette Idler. She will be joined by Juan Manuel Santos, former President of Colombia, recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize and Visiting Professor, to discuss Rethinking Conflict, Building Peace. Read about Dr Idler's research here.

Dr Idler leads an interdisciplinary 18-person team that brings together ethnographic fieldwork with quantitative analysis, complexity science, visualisation techniques, visual arts and historical tracing to provide evidence-based guidance on the directions and pace of change in conflict.
