Research Festival 2020

20–24 January 2020

The Research Festival showcases our rich and varied research landscape from across the University.

Over 1,000 people participated last year, with 2020 anticipated to be even bigger and better. The week presents the ideal platform for colleagues, industry, students and the public to engage with our research.

Full programme coming soon

The third Research Festival promises yet another fascinating insight to our growing portfolio of academic research. 

Through our health and medical expertise, we examine the brain, the body, and the ways technology play a significant role in improving healthcare. 

Sustainability and our strong relationship with the ocean are inevitably explored, confronted and communicated through dedicated sessions and days, whilst also peppered within an assortment of topics including digital visualisation, arts, history, and digital rights in an internet age. 

Fittingly for 2020, the festival also marks the Mayflower 400 commemorations through a contemporary response to our history and heritage. 

Public Research Programme

The University of Plymouth hosts a year-long programme of public events that showcase our research across a spectrum of topics.

Beginning with our annual Research Festival, the programme presents the Inaugural Professorial Lecture series, Public Research Lecture series, and the new Christmas Research Lecture throughout the year.

All are welcome to join us as our academics open the door to the intriguing world of research, inviting you to learn more about the fascinating work taking place across the University.
