Hear how Queen's research impacts on society at new series of public talks

Professor Chris Shaw will share his research as part of the Local Talent, Global Impact series of public talks

Staff, students and the wider community can find out about some of the cutting-edge research taking place at the University and the people carrying it out at a new series of public talks by Queen’s researchers.

Entitled Local Talent, Global Impact, the series of engaging talks will give staff the chance to hear researchers talk passionately about their work and the benefits it brings to society.

At each event, three colleagues will talk about their research for 20 minutes each, before responding to questions and comments from the audience.

The talks series is organised by KTP & Business Networks, part of the Research and Enterprise Directorate.  Its Director, Scott Rutherford, said: “Researchers at Queen’s make an enormous impact on the world in which we live. It is our purpose, through this series of public talks, to emphasise the breadth of the impact of the inspirational work being carried out at one of the most research-intensive universities in the UK – work that is truly exceptional.”

The first event takes place on Tuesday 29 May in Riddel Hall when Dr Diane Holt from Queen’s University Management School, Professor Shaw from the School of Pharmacy and Professor Roger Woods from the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science will share their research.

Further talks will take place on Wednesday 6 June in the Peter Froggatt Centre when the audience will hear from Professor David Johnston, Dr Jennifer McKinley and Professor Mark Price followed by Professor Marco Borghesi, Professor Cathy Craig and Dr Ryan Donnelly on 12 June in the Great Hall.
