To demonstrate the impact of research to both an internal and external audience The Research Festival is an annual event held at the University, which is now in its sixth year. Previously the festival has been internally facing but we are opening the invitation to external audiences. The emphasis of the festival is for the University to celebrate and showcase the diverse ways in which it conducts research and the main aims of the festival are
- to promote and celebrate research to both internal and external audiences
- to develop, support and promote the University research community
- to advance multidisciplinary working including having themed days around core Research Council initiatives which include Health, Ageing, Sustainability, Energy
This year’s festival will be held over a 4 day period: Tuesday 8 April - Friday 11 April 2014.
