Association of British Turkish Academics’ 7th Annual Lunch took place on the 19th of November 2016 in the Upper Hall of the Jesus College, University of Cambridge. Participants had a great opportunity to enjoy a Saturday afternoon in a beautiful medieval style hall in the company of fellow academics followed by a delightful historical tour of the city.
This year, as the keynote speaker, Professor Neil Harris, head of Centre Atmospheric Informatics and Emissions Technology in Cranfield University, addressed the audience on "Climate Change: What does the Future Hold?".
The lunch was followed by the traditional ABTA Quiz which promoted socialising among the participants. The groups that formed by the participants showcased their knowledge in a very competitive way. The quiz consisted of different questions related to science, history, arts and culture which were expected to be interesting to all academics from different fields.
Quiz winners were awarded tickets for London Philharmonic Orchestra concert, New Worlds, Belief and Beyond Belief: Science' in Royal Festival Hall.
