GW4 researchers invited to inspire the next generation

July 23, 2021

Can you remember what or who inspired you to embark on a career in research? Would you like to help inspire the next generation of researchers?

Back for a fourth year FUTURES2021 promises to be bigger and better than ever before with researchers from the GW4 Universities of Bath, Bristol and Exeter joining researchers from Bath Spa University and the University of Plymouth to showcase their work.

This major event will take place on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th September 2021. It provides GW4 researchers a unique opportunity to share your research with a broad audience, both to raise awareness and to discuss ideas that may shape the research and its impacts on our society as well as develop skills in public engagement.

FUTURES2021 aims to bring research to life in new and exciting ways online and in-person. With a whole host of events ranging from storytelling to panel discussions, comedy, quizzes and broadcasts on community radio stations, there are plenty of ways to get involved.

Researchers, research teams and postgraduate research students from all faculties are invited to take part. Funded by the EU Commission, this is the largest showcase of cutting-edge research across the region with over 300 researchers involved and aims to engage 50,000 people.

Visit the FUTURES2021 website to find out about what’s on offer, and then fill out the Researcher Expression of Interest form to register your interest and get involved.
