The Research and Enterprise team recently announced the winners of the 2018 edition of the Images of Research Competition as well as the Enterprise Showcase competition and mentoring programme.
Images of research 2018
The Images of Research competition is a simple yet powerful concept to showcase the marvellous diversity of research activities across the university.
Staff are challenged to capture their entire research project in a single image, in a form understandable by a general audience. Up to five prizes of £1000 worth of vouchers are available to each winning team.
Tia Khan, IP & Commercialisation Consultant at City, University of London, organised the competition:
We were inundated with a wealth of high quality images representing the diversity of the world-leading research being carried out at City. The judges had a very difficult time in choosing the winners. They selected five images which they felt really captured the essence of often complex research projects in an accessible way. We look forward to using these images to help promote City’s excellent research.
The Enterprise showcase 2018 competition
Innovation and Enterprise are the key to progressing research projects in the commercial market. Academics are invited to submit entries which are then assessed for commercial viability, intellectual property position and market potential.
