ICHUE Workshops and Seminars

ICHUE logo


The Centre runs a regular internal seminar series in conjunction with the School of Real Estate (organised by Vivien Burrows) at which staff and PhD students present the results of their research, generally at an early stage of development.

The Centre also organises workshops, based around our core research themes, with external as well as internal participants.
