This year, we rocketed into 2016 with our second Research Rocket event.
Taking place in the East Building lecture theatre (on campus), the audience were treated to an evening with our researchers from the Faculties of Science, Engineering & Design, Humanities & Social Sciences and the School of Management.
Through a course of quick fire presentations, they were challenged to sum up in five minutes or less their research and the impact it has in the real-world.
Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research), Jonathan Knight said “The Research Rocket made it absolutely clear why the research being done at Bath is important. The series of excellent talks, slickly presented in a rapid-fire format, made for an entertaining and informative trip across some of the research strengths of the University.”
From space weather to biological weapons, fibre optics explained with bubbles, to optimising the national blood supply chain, our researchers are truly conducting fascinating and world-changing research.
“It was a fantastic forum for sharing good practice and contained outstanding examples of the long-term nature of research impact. Above all, it was inspirational, and a great reminder of why we all love doing research.”
The event was aimed at anyone with an interest in discovery and innovation.
