QUB Research Impact Showcase
Queen’s Research Changing Lives
This exciting FREE showcase event is an excellent opportunity for pupils to meet and talk with many
of the inspiring researchers at Queen’s University.
The sixth volume in The DNA of Innovation series entitled Pioneering Research, Global Impact
will be launched at the showcase, and profiles 29 of the University’s inspiring researchers and their work
within the four new Global Research Institutes and six Pioneer Research Programmes at Queen’s.
They demonstrate how Queen’s is bringing together researchers across disciplines to address
some of the greatest societal challenges of our time.
The researchers will host exhibition stands at the showcase, and copies of the new publication
will be available (free) at the event. A few short presentations will also be given from the stage.
This is a FREE drop in event. All are welcome.
