Dr Jack Denny and Dr Rebecca Brown were invited to attend the 24th International Meeting of Mine Action National Directors and UN Advisers (NDM-UN24). The meeting, held entirely online due to COVID-19, provided an opportunity for the mine action community to reconnect, share knowledge and enhance the collective capacity to address old and new challenges under the overarching theme of “Perseverance, Partnership, Progress”.

We represented the University’s initiative of the International Blast Injury Research Network (IBRN), which is a joint project between Engineering and Medicine. The IBRN is focused on developing research strategies relating to blast injury research through its international network of partners and setting standards for blast experimental conditions.
