  • SURF Interdisciplinary Sandwiches

    We’re pleased to announce an initiative by SURF (Swansea University Research Forum) to enhance cross-campus academic and social interaction.


    The idea is simple: we invite you to bring your sandwiches, coffee, whatever to the SURF room, on the first floor of Fulton House, on Tuesdays from 1230, starting on November 9th. It’s a chance to get away from your desk, and to meet colleagues from across campus in a relaxed and friendly environment. No programme, no talks: just a chance to chat over lunch.

     Please come along – you never know who you might meet…

     Best wishes,

    Ian Rutt and Kasia Szpakowska

    P.S. Of course, some weeks, there will be other things going on in the SURF room (such as the SURF seminar just advertised), but we hope you’ll come along to those events as well!
