The aim of the event is to discuss whether or how a University's decisions regarding investment should affect, or be affected by, its research and teaching activities. The discussion could also cover questions about criteria used when vetting funding sources. The aim is to air and clarify the issues as a contribution to the University's commitment to social responsibility.
