What is Research as Art?

Research as Art is a competition which provides a platform for students, researchers and university staff to convey the importance of their research.

For researchers used to describing their work in academic papers, distilling their research down to one picture and a 150-word description can present a challenge.

However, Research as Art is less about the stunning picture, and more about the story. It's about what goes on behind the research; what it means to be a researcher.
