The annual Research Festival returns for the fifth year to celebrate collaboration across academia, policy and industry, responding to the theme: a systems-thinking approach to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
  • Are coastal communities receiving the research and investment they need? 
  • How do universities progress policy and action in the clean growth agenda? 
  • How do we ensure a resilient, future-ready NHS? 
  • What role do the Arts have in achieving greater research impact? 
These are some of the questions our world-leading academic community and key partner organisations will venture into.
We welcome insightful perspectives from influential keynote speakers, including Dr Rita Gardner, Chief Executive of the Academy of Social Sciences; Michael Lewis, CEO of E.ON; Sir Harry Studholme, former chairman of the UK Forestry Commission; and members of UK Government. 
You’ll hear the latest insights directly from the experts on tackling the most pressing 21st-century global challenges.
Add your voice to the discussions and discover how your research or business could achieve greater impact through taking a whole-system, collaborative approach.
Building on the success of 2021’s online edition, Research Festival 2022 invites you to attend a mixed-delivery programme of in person, online or hybrid events so you can join us from wherever you are.
