“These images and stories really lift the lid on research at the University of Strathclyde. You leave the exhibition understanding more fully not only how this cutting-edge research is shaping the world we live in but also the dedication and imagination of the people doing the work. I’m glad so many people will get a chance to see this.”

Chris Thomson of JISC, Judging Panel, 2015
