The Knowledge Centre is a major initiative from the University which aims to ensure the University of Warwick continues as a primary source of knowledge and learning online. Academics from across the University often bring different perspectives on the same subjects. We have brought those academics together for "Tête-à-Tête" - a video series tackling cross-disciplinary ideas.
