Images of Research

An Exhibition of Strathclyde’s Impact

 

We challenged the academic and research communities at the University of Strathclyde to share their work with the public using just a single, inspiring image and short description.  The successful entries were exhibited during the inaugural Engage with Strathclyde week of events and the exhibition then embarked on a tour of venues in the West of Scotland.  

This gallery is a collection of photographs taken during Engage with Strathclyde (30 April - 3 May 2012).
