Images of Research

Images of Research at City, University of London is an annual competition and subsequent exhibition of City’s research activities.

This exhibition showcases in thought-provoking ways the application of some of the world-leading research carried out across the five academic Schools which make up City.

City prides itself on academic excellence for business and the professions. In essence, this means that our research not only results in the generation of new knowledge but, invariably, knowledge which can be applied in many ways - for example, in the creation of new products, new services, to inform decision making and to support economic growth.

The application process for the 2016 competition is now closed.

Application process
