31st Irish Environmental Researchers Colloquium
This year's conference, a collaboration between the Environmental Sciences Association of Ireland (ESAI) and the Environmental Research Institute at University College Cork, was hosted online on 16th to 18th June.
Environ is the longest running and largest forum for environmental researchers in Ireland with almost 300 delegates attending the event annually. It provides a high-visibility platform for young and experienced researchers to present their findings to an audience drawn from academia, government bodies and agencies, as well as industry.
Congratulations to our postgraduate students that presented at Environ 2021, and in particular to PhD student Vaishali Vardhan, winner of the CIWM Best Wastes and Resources Management Presentation Award. Vaishali's presentation was entitled 'A fundamental breakthrough in detecting atmospheric radicals'. Her PhD research is part of the RADICAL project, an EU-funded research project to develop a brand-new way of detecting atmospheric radicals in real-time.
