Ann Bolstridge,

At this event, hosted by Midland Heart, you will hear about 10 projects exploring different aspects of superdiversity and migration, many of them in Birmingham. After a very brief presentation by each Project Leader, you will have the opportunity to engage in discussions about how the research might develop in ways which would be useful to professionals, policymakers and practitioners in Birmingham, and how organisations and institutions based in and around Birmingham might engage with the research projects as they evolve.
