6th Annual Postgraduate Research Conference 2013

A Celebration of Interdisciplinarity
Interdisciplinary research is being carried out in many different places combining arts and health, psychology and marketing, dance and biomedical engineering, and many others. Interdisciplinarity seeks to have a real impact in many fields by being the driving force for investigation and knowledge discovery.

Digital Future of Research July 2013

The research environment is changing, increasing the demands on research students, however, it also increases the possibility for researchers to collect, manage, analyse and interpret data more quickly than the traditional way. Social media is changing the communication between researchers and the way of thinking about research. In addition, a debate has already started around the Open Access movement and its implications (ethical, legal and commercial).
