The Research Festival was opened on Monday 3rd July by Professor John Jones, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research at the University of Warwick. The opening event of the Research Festival, the Cavitation Symposium, was held in the Warwick International Manufacturing Centre, with Professor Stuart Palmer, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Warwick, chairing the keynote closing lecture by Professor Egusquiza from Barcelona.
The 3rd AC21 International Research Festival had 10 events with over 60 national and international speakers and discussants from Beijing to Nagoya and Sydney to California. 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.
There were over 1100 registrations for the Research Festival.
