Films put research in spotlight

Research from across the University has been showcased in a series of short films.

More than 400 one-minute movies have been produced featuring researchers from a range of disciplines talking about their work.

The intiative, named Research in a Nutshell, was designed to encourage collaboration between staff from different backgrounds.

As a result, many interesting stories were uncovered with broad appeal, both for audiences within and outwith the University.

Each video is accompanied by background information with links to related videos and websites.

Users may also search for staff members, research topics and keywords, or browse by research centre, institute, school and college.

Broad sweep

Included in the film topics are art, divinity, education, engineering, informatics and astronomy through to neuroscience, genetics and veterinary medicine.

Areas discussed include historical documents, social issues, climate change, technological developments and artistic practices.

The project has been developed by a team in the School of Informatics, led by Professor Robert Fisher.

Ongoing project

Funding was made available from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and the University.

More videos are being added each week.

The best thing about these videos is they show how much exciting research our staff are doing on the issues that interest and matter to people today.
