City Metabolisms: Discovering how research can enable resilience

Megan Naylor, Cohort 2017

Recently, I made the journey down to Birmingham, with fellow Cohort 2017 member Kyle McLean, to attend UKCRIC’s annual Future Research Leaders conference.

In the second year of the SELA programme, stretch assignments involve both the leadership and project-management skills developed on the programme, and the technical knowledge developed through our degrees. Our stretch assignment this year is in partnership with the Urban Flows Observatory, a branch of UKCRIC.

< Hackcessing Leadership Opportunities />

Last week, four members of SELA participated in the UK’s first ever accessibility make-a-thon, hosted by Hackcessible. Hackcessible, in its inaugural year, presented challenges from eight individuals with different disabilities and accessibility issues, enthusing teams of engineers and designers to work together to come up with innovative solution.

Our SELA members describe their experience taking part in Hackcessible.
