Since the beginning of 2012, the Health Promotion Research Centre (HPRC) has organised various research seminars across a broad range of topic areas. These research seminars are generally held bi-monthly with exception to the summer months.  There is no formal format for the seminars but they are usually one hour in duration and have included presentations followed by discussion.

These seminars provide an opportunity for researchers, PHD students and academics within the department and the School of Health Sciences to:

  • share on-going or completed research with peers in a professional supportive environment
  • gain exposure to the variety of research methods and projects on-going within the discipline and potential external colleagues
  • elicit feedback and discussions on the presented topic areas.
