All students and staff at Bath Spa are warmly invited to attend this Research Festival, which will provide an exciting opportunity to find out more about the variety and wealth of creativity in research practices at the university.
The Research Festival will showcase and celebrate research excellence across the university, increase awareness of current research activities in different departments and research centres, inspire and build future collaborations with colleagues and students, and explore how Bath Spa can continue to respond to global challenges facing the world today.
This day will provide a supportive forum for discussing ‘work in progress’ and scoping out new research ideas and innovations. The programme will include a series of sessions featuring research from across the University, bringing together new partners and collaborations across different fields. Sessions will be presented in a variety of formats, such as workshops, performances, panels, debates, and films. They will engage with the following themes:
Relationships between theory and practice in research
Co-production across the university community and beyond
Methodological approaches to research, including alternative and creative methodologies and research-led curricula
Research and enterprise/ industry
Research in the world
Research posters created by postgraduate research students at Bath Spa will be displayed in the Commons atrium for viewing over lunch and during breaks between sessions.
