Research Group Guests for Annual Conference
Join a Research Group

Research Groups

The Society’s Research Groups bring together active researchers and those with a professional interest in a particular aspect of geography and related disciplines. 

Research Groups meet at the Annual Conference when they also hold their Annual General Meetings (AGMs). Throughout the year there is a varying level of activity for each Research Group with seminars, conferences, workshops, reading days etc. Joining a research group enables you to; network with colleagues with similar research interests, keep up to date with the latest research in your specialised field and receive information on conferences, workshops and funding opportunities.
