Meeting at Heaton Mount - Bradford conference venue

Be part of #UoBresearchculture...

#UoBresearchculture at its best...


  • We have a vibrant array of research seminars and other events, including bradford experts and external guest speakers.
  • Our ethos is to encourage researchers to try other disciplines and specialisms - to support our whole research community - not just your host research centre or cluster.
  • The future of research is interdisciplinary, so starting early during your doctoral research is a good idea.
  • If you attend a seminar and are a social media user, please share your positive experience with the hashtag #UoBresearchculture.



Café Scientifique

Café Scientifique is a friendly and collaborative exploration of the latest breakthroughs in science. You’ll hear about, discuss and debate some of the most recent advances and discoveries in science and healthcare, and their importance to society. It is a national movement and the Bradford chapter is a collaboration between the University of Bradford, the National Science and Media Museum and Theatre in the Mill.

  • Each event has a theme—they’ve included everything from the latest in physics to the science of music, from nanotechnology to biology.
  • Café Scientifique is a great way to meet new people and exercise your mind.
  • Discuss the discoveries you’ve seen in the headlines, or learn something completely new.
  • These are social, public events held in the evening in-person or online.
  • Keep up to date—follow Café Scientifique on Facebook and Twitter.

Dr Delderfield says: "These are good but the last one was incredible - hearing from NHS staff about their lives during the pandemic - insightful but also incredibly moving to learn what front-line care is really like."
