University Research Competition

10.00am

Public

Please register your attendance by Thursday 28 May

This event celebrates the variety of research being undertaken at City. The previous competitors have demonstrated a diverse range of high quality research and academic excellence, making it very difficult for the judges to pick a winner.

Up to 5 awards of up to £12k are available for projects that address one or more of the following instructional priorities:

  • Development of impact (in the REF sense of the word) from recently completed research.
  • Development of a major research grant application.
  • Development of an innovation application (e.g. a KTP, collaborative research with an external company or business, or a high-level CPD event or programme).

Applications will be assessed before the Research Competition, with the presentation scores accounting for the final 30% of the overall decision. The candidates/teams will have 5 minutes to present their proposal with 5 minutes for question
