Durham University Researchers’ Poster Competition

28th April 2016, 10:00 to 15:00, Clayport Library, Millennium Place, Durham

Come and have a look at the posters that the postgraduate researchers created from a wide range of topics, ask them questions about their research and vote for your favourite.

From infant safe-sleep boxes, females’ sexual abuse of children, visual distraction in the classroom and biodegradable polyurethanes to the EU’s imaginings of the Arctic and the orientation of Roman forts in Northern England, to name but a few, this is a chance for everybody to find out in a relaxed atmosphere about the research that postgraduates at Durham University do.

The event is being held at Clayport Library and is open to everyone. From school and college pupils thinking about future careers to members of the public interested in finding out what actually goes on at the University, everyone is welcome and everyone attending will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite poster.

10am – 3pm - The competition will be open to the public throughout the day and researchers will be available as much as possible to discuss their posters with visitors and other entrants.

2.30pm: Awarding of prizes by the Chancellor of Durham University, Sir Thomas Allen.

The judges will be drawn from a wide range of academic and non-academic backgrounds and there will also be an audience winner, so come along and cast your vote.
