The University of York and Mahidol University in Thailand are strengthening and deepening an existing institutional partnership, including research and teaching (undergraduate and post-graduate) across a range of disciplines and subject areas.
One ongoing research project, existing within York’s broader interests in water-waste governance and management, examines the implications (policy-oriented, social and environmental) of using treated wastewater to address drought stress in the agricultural sector. This work currently engages members of the Biology, Environment & Geography, and Chemistry departments, but we welcome and are looking to engage and interact across disciplines at York and Mahidol.
To this end- during our Thai colleagues campus visit we invite you to a mini-conference in which we can discuss common interests and develop further collaborative ventures. The event will be primarily a chance to introduce yourselves and then to break into common interests to identify effective collaborative efforts. This approach worked well for the current teams working through the British Council Research Excellence Links program.
This will be a hybrid conference with participation both in-person and online, from 9.00 to 13.00 (BST)/15:00 to 19:00 Thailand time.
On behalf of the research team of Redeker, Sallach, Chong and Friend (York) and Kaewsuk and Netiya (Mahidol)
