College of Science Research Buzz Week

6, 7 & 10 JUN
 posted by

As part of our ‘Research Buzz Week’ the College of Science is organising a number of tours of our research facilities and laboratories in June 2022 to showcase the exciting research being carried out in the College, and to inspire colleagues across the University to collaborate with us in new research challenges and opportunities.

This is a unique opportunity for all staff at the University to learn more about the amazing research our academic colleagues and research students are working on within the College, to see and learn more about each of the School, Centre and Institute research activities and facilities, and please invite your chosen industrial and other sector partners to come along with you for the experience.

Each guided tour will include explanations of the facilities on show, demonstrations, posters and videos. Each tour also offers its own unique opportunities as set out below.

In order to coordinate the tours and activities we need to get accurate numbers of people attending each day, so for each person wanting to go on a tour, please click on the headings below, complete the relevant Eventbrite page and submit!
