About the colloquium

The Research Centre of Green Technologies of University of Nottingham Malaysia (UNM) is inviting participants to the 5th Postgraduate Colloquium in Environmental Research (POCER). POCER aims to provide a platform for postgraduate students to engage in discussions with fellow researchers on their works in environmental research. The theme for POCER 2019 is: "Green Technologies: Bridging Conventional Practices and Industry 4.0”, and will take place during 8-9 August 2019 at Putrajaya, the Federal Administrative Centre of Malaysia. 

This biannual postgraduate colloquium was first initiated in 2011, and has since expanded to a wide pool of participants from China, India, Philippines and Taiwan. Specifically, POCER wishes to bring together postgraduate and early career researchers, to encourage exchange of ideas and issues amongst peers, as well as experience-sharing from more senior researchers.
