University hosts Interdisciplinary Showcase
3 November 09
The University of Bradford will open its doors this month and demonstrate how it's making a difference to the world and the city of Bradford through its research and knowledge transfer activities.
The sixth annual Research and Knowledge Transfer Showcase (Wednesday, 11 November 2009) will see staff from across the University's academic spectrum coming together under one roof to show off their world class areas of research. As part of this year's theme, there will be a special focus on research projects and centres that have interdisciplinary themes where collaboration between departments of the University is taking place.
The showcase will be officially opened by Rob Wilmot who was one of the founding executives who established Freeserve which went on to be the biggest Internet Service Provider (ISP). Rob is also a graduate of the University of Bradford. He was one of the first students to complete the Electronic Imaging and Media Communications course in 1994.
The Research and Knowledge Transfer Showcase will run from 1pm to 4pm on Wednesday 11 November 2009 in the Atrium, which is in the Richmond Building on the main campus of the University of Bradford.
The University of Bradford's reputation for high international quality research was further enhanced by a strong performance in December 2008's national Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).
The RAE is a leading measure of a University's research strengths and quality. Almost two thirds of Bradford's academic staff were entered in the RAE and of those submitted, 80% were recognised to be producing research of 'international' and 'world-leading' quality. This figure rose in some cases to above 90%.
