Spark Showcase Event

Welcome to the SPaRK Research Showcase

On June 23rd we celebrated the achievements of the SPaRK cohort and learnt more about the individual research projects that have formed this unique interdisciplinary programme.

SPaRK is a Horizon2020 funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie doctoral training programme that has supported 20 interdisciplinary PhD students at Queen’s University Belfast.  The project commenced in May 2017 and most of our first cohort have completed their research with the second cohort due to complete by the end of 2021.  

The showcase allowed us to celebrate the achievments of the programme and the individual researchers.

Please watch this short video for a summary of our achievements. Individual researcher presentations are available by clicking on their project title below.
