Images of Research open to entries


This annual competition and subsequent year-long exhibition brings the research conducted at Strathclyde to an audience of thousands of people visiting art galleries, museums and public spaces.

This year’s competition: Innovation for the global good, aims to highlight Strathclyde’s endeavours to address today’s global challenges, demonstrating the impact of our research in contributing to the ‘global neighbourhood’, supporting society to become more resilient and inclusive. This year we return to four categories, drawing inspiration from the University’s strategic themes:

  • Healthy perspectives
  • Closing the loop
  • Digital connections
  • Tackling uncertainty

How to take part:

Deadline for entries:  Sunday 27th January
