Research Conference 2017

In line with the University’s focus on the Research Excellence Framework, we have decided to run a Research Conference at UWL this year with a view to becoming an annual event.

The UWL Research Conference will bring together staff and students from the University community to discuss their research and will take place on Friday 30 June.

If you have completed or participated in a research project, implementation, or engagement activity, please consider sharing your work at the 2017 conference. The purpose is to enable you to showcase the quality and breadth of research currently being carried out within the University and how you are making valuable contributions to your field and beyond. 

In order to bring closer together the synergies between teaching and research, we have decided to attach the Research Conference to the Teaching and Learning conference planned on Thursday 29 June. We hope you will be able to attend both, and look forward to your contribution.

The conference will include a keynote address and staff and student presentations and workshops.
