Description

FREE, just drop in.

Join the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science from the University of Dundee at the Mills Observatory for an afternoon of hands-on activities and short talks. You will have the opportunity to contribute to forensic science research and try out your skills as a forensic investigator.

The Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science was established in 2016 to disrupt the forensic science ecosystem. It is a £10 million research centre funded for 10 years by the Leverhulme Trust. The Centre has positive disruption at its very core, creating an interdisciplinary space where our researchers interact on a regular basis with people from across the criminal justice space. Our collaborators are global and are drawn from the senior Judiciary, law enforcement, forensic practitioners, crime scene investigators, innovators and entrepreneurs. We facilitate honest conversations articulating co shared challenges and delivering collaborative solutions to support a fair and just criminal justice system.

You can learn more about us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/lrcfs/) and on our website https://www.dundee.ac.uk/leverhulme/
