SURF Research as Art Exhibition 24th June

  • Swansea University Research Forum (SURF) would like to invite you to the SURF Research as Art Exhibition 2011.

    This event celebrates the diversity and beauty of research at Swansea University. A competition was held, inviting images from all over the University that are inspired by research or inspire research. Sixty entries were received from all areas of research, and a distinguished panel of judges selected a total of 13 winners. All entries will be displayed at the exhibition and prizes awarded by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor Professor Noel Thompson.

    The exhibition will be open from 2:30pm on Friday 24th June in the Digital Technium Atrium (ground floor, left off reception), with the prize giving at 3:30pm. The exhibition is open to all. Drinks and nibbles will be available.

    A high-profile judging panel was assembled for the competition, with a broad range of expertise:

    –          Prof. Dame Jean Thomas (Vice-President & Biological Secretary of the Royal Society)

    –          Catherine Draycott (Head of Wellcome Images)

    –          Dr. Rosie Plummer (Director of National Botanic Garden of Wales)

    –          Prof. Noel Thompson (Pro-Vice-Chancellor – Academic Development)

    –          Prof. Hilary Lappin-Scott (Pro-Vice-Chancellor – Strategic Development/Change Management)

    –          Dr. Richard Johnston (Awards Organiser, SURF Board Member, Lecturer in Engineering)

    On behalf of SURF we hope to see you there … this promises to build on the success of last year’s event, aiming to stimulate conversations and meetings between diverse researchers across campus.
