The postgraduate research students from the Faculty of Science, Business and Enterprise were challenged to take part in a competition to design an academic poster about their own research project. 

Creating a poster is an important part of research, providing an opportunity to summarise work, promote ideas, form collaborations and generate discussions that inspire future work. The competition was aimed at encouraging our students to make posters that catch the eye, are easy to understand and help participants to network with other students.   

The winners were voted for by the students themselves and prizes were presented by Professor Julieanna Powell-Turner Associate Dean for Research and Innovation, the University’s Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research and Innovation Professor Paul Bissell, and Pro Vice Chancellor and Executive Dean of the Faculty of Science, Business and Enterprise Professor Kurt Allman. 

The winner was Athalia Dangerfield, whose poster distilled her research project, How Relevant is Social Entrepreneurship Education. Athalia said: “I am thrilled to have won the poster competition and look forward to next year's competition where I’ll present further results from my research.” 

The runners up were Nick Smith (Ambidextrous Decision Making in Apprenticeship Training Delivery), and Paul Underhill (IoT Embedded Software Manipulation). 

Professor Julieanna Powell-Turner said: “The competition had a very high standard and it was really interesting to see the students’ work. I would like to thank Dr Richard Stocker and Pauline Morton who contributed significantly to this event, working diligently behind the scenes to ensure it ran on time, and smoothly.”
