An annual celebration of the pioneering work of our postgraduate researchers
Organised by the Bristol Doctoral College in collaboration with the University Research Institutes, Research without Borders is the University of Bristol's public festival of postgraduate research.
Research without Borders Online Showcase Exhibition
This year our postgraduate researchers shared their innovative research as part of our online showcase exhibition.
The showcase exhibition took place live onlin in May via Remo, an online event platform, participant had the opportunity to meet with each of our 35 researchers in small friendly groups to discuss the impact their work is having on the wider world in an interactive way.
Each postgraduate researcher developed an engaging digital asset that helps to explain their work in an accessible way, we are pleased to be able to share all of the resources created for Research without Borders 2021 on our Padlet Site.
Our discussion series, organised in collaboration with the University Research Institutes, will be taking place as part of the Futures festival on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 September. Seven postgraduate research students will have the opportunity to present in person as part of two panel events in partnership with The Cabot Institute for the Environment and The Elizabeth Blackwell Institute for Health Research as part of this exciting festival celebrating research.
