The popular VIU Science and Technology Community Lecture Series is back for the Spring term and is on every Wednesday  January 16, 2019 through to April 10, 2019.  The lectures will be in Room 203, Building 355 from 7.00-8.00 pm with refreshments at 6.45 pm.

The lecture series is an opportunity for our Science and Technology faculty, as well as local and international scientists to engage with the broader VIU faculty, students and community in ongoing research and science initiatives that are occurring in our regional and local coastal communities.

This website will be updated regularly through the lecture series.  Please contact Jennifer or Tim if you have any questions.
