Festival of Research 2020

Due to the current Coronavirus situation, the Festival of Research 2020 cannot take place as planned.  We have created a new virtual programme which can be viewed below.  Please note that we are still keen to receive nominations for the Research Culture awards;  

Research Culture Awards

The aim of the research culture awards is to celebrate people and groups who contribute towards a positive research environment in the University. We would like to show that we value those traits which are not captured with traditional metrics but which are essential to a vibrant and collaborative culture. We are relying on colleagues to nominate one another in the following 6 categories: Best Research leader; Best Collaborator; best support from Professional Services; Best mentor; Best Early career researcher; Best activity which enhances the research culture. Like with Rate awards, all nominees will get the feedback from their nominations so use this opportunity to let a colleague know how much you value them and why. The top nominees in each category will be invited to the awards ceremony as part of the Festival of Research where the winners will be announced. Nominations can be made here until Friday 17th April.

Pecha kucha sessions

We are hoping to go ahead with our pecha kucha sessions during the Festival of Research. Open to researchers at any career stage, including our postgraduate research students, if you would like to note your interest in presenting a pecha kucha on your research please get in touch before Friday 17th April.
