Poster Day 2012

Thursday 22nd March: University Poster Day

Poster day is our annual celebration of research where all second year research students – from all subject areas – gather in Mountford Hall to present a poster on their research. Poster Day promotes the public communication of research by providing a showcase of the University’s research talent and it also helps participants develop communication skills. Prizes and commendations were awarded by the judges to those poster presenters that communicated their research best to a ‘degree educated general public.’ Thirty five judges drawn from all three faculties each examined a section of the exhibition and talked to the participants. The intensity of the research on view and the evident enthusiasm of the presenters made this a very interesting, enjoyable and involving process.

The winners and their poster titles are as follows:
