About the colloquium

The Research Centre of Green Technologies of University of Nottingham Malaysia (UNM) is inviting participants to the 6th 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 2022 is: " The Green Industrial Revolution of the Next Decade ”, and will take place during 4th - 6th August 2022 at Langkawi island, the Jewel of Kedah state, well-known for the 'duty-free' island which has been granted by the Malaysian government. 

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