Update: ESTA Annual Course & Conference 2020

Owing to the control measures established by the UK government in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ESTA Council and the University of Derby have reluctantly cancelled the Annual Course and Conference originally scheduled for 2 to 4 October 2020.

However, the University of Derby are now working on a programme of online talks and workshops – including the popular Bring and Share session – to be held on Saturday 3 October 2020. This virtual conference on the theme of Geology for the Future will be free to attend, but numbers are limited, so registration will be essential.

Details about the programme and how to register will be posted as soon as they are available.
