Gathering around 200 guests, the Annual Reception, held on 21 June 2012, launched our new Graduate School which will form a dynamic institutional hub bringing together doctoral researchers, supervisors, and School-based research centres, to inspire and encourage high-quality innovation and fresh thinking and to foster collaborative research.

Those present were able to view a selection of 24 of the best graduate research project presentations, and quiz the researchers about their approaches and findings.
