Researchers to share their 'Big Ideas' with people across Liverpool

You are invited to hear six quick-fire presentations from LJMU academics as they showcase the innovative research being undertaken for our communities in the Liverpool City Region.

The Big Ideas event will take place on Wednesday 6 March from 5.30pm to 8pm at LJMU’s Redmonds Building on its Mount Pleasant Campus.

During the evening be prepared to be inspired, challenged and motivated by our thought-provoking speakers from the Faculty of Arts, Professional and Social Studies who will share insights into their research in six snappy presentations. Topics will include English devolution, challenges facing people prescribed cannabis and our global Commonwealth community on Merseyside.

Following the short research presentations there will be an opportunity to ask questions and to then network with other attendees. Refreshments will be provided.

Tickets for the event are free and can be booked via Eventbrite.  

What is Big Ideas?

Big Ideas is part of an annual programme of research and engagement activities at LJMU that foster collaboration and knowledge exchange with its local communities.  

Through these opportunities our communities can:

  • Discover exciting research we are undertaking in the Liverpool City Region
  • Meet and chat with staff and student researchers
  • Network with guests including culture, arts and community groups, businesses, local government and education representatives

A Reverse Big Ideas event will take place later in the year where community groups will take the lead in sharing how their interaction with LJMU’s teaching and research is enhancing community partnerships.
