Impact Training and Environment Symposium for Early Career Researchers


Learn more about an Impact Training week hosted by water@leeds in our short film. The training focussed on how to deliver impact from research to address the global phosphorus challenge. 

Fifteen early career researchers from across Europe were on campus in March 2023 for the event which was organised in partnership with the RecaP Project, an EU-funded MSCA PhD training network that explores the technical and socio-political dimensions of phosphorus use.

Participants explored the multidimensional environmental challenges revolving around phosphorus from different academic disciplines with renowned phosphorous and environmental scholars.

The Training, which was coordinated by Professor Julia Martin-Ortega, included a networking event with a suite of panellists and phosphorus experts ranging from rock, to molecules, to wastewater and catchment science. This event was also supported by the Global Food and Environment Institute.

The training week also included a field visit to Hardcastle Crags (below) to learn more about iCASP impact delivery model and the Calderdale NFM project.
