There were over 1100 registrations for the symposia and workshops in our Research Festival programme. The Research Festival provided a major opportunity for invited national and international speakers from universities, industry and experts on policy to discuss international level 21st Century research with academics, opinion leaders and the public. The 10 events in the Festival, which included lectures, panel discussions, poster displays and a Shakespeare Programme in Stratford, provided major opportunities to network with AC21 partners and attendees from other leading research centres from around the world.
