The prestigious Maitland lecture returned in 2022 focusing on the topic of agriculture production and biodiversity.

The Maitland lecture is an opportunity to hear a fascinating presentation on a cutting-edge topic that provides a different viewpoint and perspective on issues that are high on a structural engineer’s agenda.

We are delighted to announce that our guest speaker was Dr Alastair Leake, Head of the Allerton Project, the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust. Dr Leake spoke about his work in agriculture developing holistic approaches to production that maximise yields and biodiversity whilst minimising environmental impacts.
