Universities Week

Universities Week has been running since 2010 and this year we aim to open up a national conversation about the relevance of university research and its everyday impact on our lives.

Universities impact every aspect of our lives and we benefit from them on a daily basis – from the lifesaving impact of medical discoveries to the digital innovation that has changed the way we listen to music.

Join the debate and share your best ideas@uni_week

A number of public engagement activities will be taking place throughout the UK, including at Staffordshire University. All Fringe events between the 9th and 15th June are part of Universities Week.

Details of all events around the country are available here on the Universities Week website.

As well as local activities, the Natural History Museum in central London will also play host to a series of inspiring public engagement activities around university research.  For one week only, you will be able to take part in a series of engaging and inspiring activities. From meeting researchers to discussing the latest societal issues, you can learn about how UK university research is helping to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges.

Staffordshire University is taking part of this week long celebration of the most cutting-edge research. We are showing our Crime Science exhibition which returns to the Science Centre in Stoke on Trent on the 14th June.
