Opportunity to deliver a short session at the FoL


Missed out on holding an event at the Festival of Learning? Have an idea but not sure it’s enough for an entire event? Here’s your chance. RKEO are hosting a celebration of BU research successes at the Festival of Learning and we have a number of short sessions still available. These are for 15 mins, including questions, and are an opportunity to present completed or partial research, or simply to share some ideas and receive feedback from the audience. It might be useful if your funder requires lay input to your proposal? You may even find some participants or advisory group members.

If you are interested in taking up this opportunity, on a first-come, first-served basis, please send a title and short abstract to Jennifer Roddis – – by 5pm on 6 July.

Lightning Talks event – come and find out about the exciting research undertaken by BU staff and student researchers!

On Monday 13 July, between 6-8pm, a group of BU staff and student researchers will present lightning talks of their research and its significance. They each have just five minutes to do this. The audience will vote for the best presentation at the end, followed by a drinks reception.

Come along and find out more about the research undertaken by BU researchers! Talks cover a whole range of topics, from dementia to climate change to PR.
