Research Forum

The research forum is an opportunity to celebrate and showcase the outcomes of projects carried out in the previous year(s) and to share details of new research.

The forum is a celebration of research. We share the outputs of research, share information about ongoing research and related topics and provide an opportunity for attendees to discuss interests and ambitions around research.

This free event is open to all staff from across the Trust. We’ll be displaying research posters at the event and will ask attendees to vote for their favourite. Winning posters will receive prizes awarded for 1st and 2nd places
