The annual research fortnight events at the University of the Arts London offer staff from across our different subject areas and colleges a chance to get to know more about what their colleagues are researching. Academics, support staff and PhD students all contribute their time to a rich programme of activities that we hope will encourage new debates and collaborations.

Professor Oriana Baddeley, Dean of Research, UAL.
