Festival of Research is an annual series of events committed to stimulating discussion around topics of interest to the researcher community and a platform to showcase research and future plans, celebrate successes and facilitate networking opportunities.

Monday 20 and Tuesday 21 May 2024

Co-convenors Professor Iain Docherty, Dean of the Institute for Advanced Studies and Professor Rachel Norman, Dean of Research Engagement and Performance, are delighted to share plans for this year’s Festival of Research, which will take place on Monday 20 May and Tuesday 21 May 2024.
This year’s Festival programme will see a series of events that will focus on the new Research and Innovation strategy, international research, a research integrity world café, and the PGR Images of Research Competition. 

The programme will also host the popular Research Culture Awards to recognise collaborative and supportive behaviour with nominations opening mid-March. The Research Culture Awards Ceremony will be co-hosted by Professor Rachel Norman (Dean for Research Engagement and Performance) and Professor Edward Duncan (Associate Dean for Research Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport and Research Environment Group Vice-Chair) on Tuesday 21 May.  

All events, with the exception of the PGR Images of Research Competition, will be hybrid. Planning for the Festival and the Research Culture Awards is underway, and we look forward to releasing further information soon.
