Images of Research exhibition

For our inaugural Images of Research exhibition in 2017, academics and PhD students were invited to submit an image and 200 words to communicate the essence of their research. 

Images of Research 2018, hosted by the Winchester Discovery Centre, reflected our commitment to making a difference. True to our values, our research benefits a wide range of groups, from Gypsie communities and young carers to children from military service families and children with disabilities. The exhibition also highlighted other notable research strengths at the University of Winchester, such as history and archaeology, responsible management, and sport science.
