Interdisciplinary Research Week 2015

Join us to celebrate the breadth and excellence of Bournemouth University’s research across its many disciplines, and spark new collaborations and ideas among our diverse research community.

This week-long event includes a programme of lectures, demonstrations, discussions, and a film, all aimed at showcasing some of the fantastic research being undertaken at the university.

Bournemouth University is proud to be at the centre of a network of educational, business and local government partners who form a powerful team dedicated to world-class research. Together we create a rewarding exchange of knowledge that stimulates new ideas to examine important societal issues across the globe. Our innovative integration of perspectives from the arts, humanities and social sciences, along with methods drawn from computer science, engineering or the physical sciences, puts us at the forefront of developing new advanced strategies and technologies.


We look forward to welcoming you to our inaugural Interdisciplinary Research Week.
