Texas Research Excellence Showcase

Texas Research Showcase

Timed to coincide with what would have been the 100th Birthday of Swansea-born poet Dylan Thomas, Swansea University held a showcase of its research excellence at a series of events in Texas from 26th - 31st October 2014.

The showcase featured lectures from 20 of the University's internationally recognised researchers from across its subject areas and was held in partnership with three of the University's Texas partner Universities, the University of Houston, Texas A&M University and the University of Texas at Austin.

Event sponsorship was provided by Burleson LLP.
