Working with water@leeds – one of the largest interdisciplinary centres for cutting-edge water research in the world – Nexus will also host numerous events this year to mark the organisation’s tenth anniversary. Visit for further information about the 10th anniversary events.

And in collaboration with Bettakultcha – the independent forum for ideas, inventiveness and fun – Nexus is running a series of innovative discussion events. The first in the series took place last month and looked at the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) technology on society. The next event will take place on the 17 April.
