Last year, we highlighted how the IfM helped the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, Tim Minshall, the Dr John C Taylor Professor of Innovation and Head of the IfM and colleagues, returns to the alumni festival to spotlight the IfM projects that are supporting a more sustainable and more resilient world.

Following the conversation, the panel will take questions.
