Research Week

Research week

Research Week is an annual celebration of research and the important role it plays at Ara in developing creativity and applying leading-edge innovation among our staff and students. As research at Ara focuses on solving real-world problems and developing ideas, we’ve chosen the theme of ‘Applying Innovation’.

Collectively, the events within Research Week provide a snapshot of the variety of the excellent research undertaken, from tips on saving money by managing your electricity better, to insights into the new world of electronic word-of-mouth marketing. Come along to be informed, amazed and entertained!
