The annual University of Plymouth Research Festival returns in summer 2021 to showcase the outstanding research carried out by staff at the University in collaboration with colleagues and partners locally, nationally and internationally. Previous years have seen over 1000 attendees and led to new collaborations, launched research networks, communicated interdisciplinary projects, and encouraged public engagement on some of the world's most pressing issues.
The University of Plymouth’s annual Research Festival returns to celebrate interdisciplinary research that creates an impact, locally and globally. Academics, businesses, partners, students and the public are invited to sample a diverse programme of topics, from the global challenges facing our health and our environment – both on land and sea – to engineering and cybersecurity, architecture and education.
The Supergen ORE Hub is working with the University of Plymouth to organise two events during the Research Festival.
