Student and Staff Research Conference 2022

Lifting Barriers: New Research at London Met

Building on the success of the previous two years, we are pleased to announce the third annual University-wide research conference. Part of a number of initiatives aiming to connect our entire community and to present our research at London Met to a wider audience. The event will provide a platform for students and staff to come together and showcase their research with the aim of celebrating and sharing our findings and fostering future collaborative and interdisciplinary partnerships.

This year, we are also delighted to be able to host the second day at our Holloway Road campus, for the first time since launching the conference in 2020.

Papers from all five Schools at London Met will be presented, tackling current issues and looking to create solutions for challenges at the local, national and international level.

The conference is organised by the Postgraduate Research Student-Staff Liaison Forum which brings together research students and staff to discuss academic and research community matters in cooperation with the Graduate School, the Research Office. The forum is chaired by Dr Eirini Meimaridou and Student Chair, Subeksha Shrestha.

The conference will take place over two days, the first online and the second on campus. 

London Met’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Lynn Dobbs will launch the Conference on the 12th July and Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Julie Hall, will open day two, which will be held on campus. 

The two days will feature 15-minute papers, allocated to topical panels such as: Nutrition, Sustainability and the Built Environment, Inclusivity, Advances in and uses of Technology, Artistic Expression and Human Behaviour.

We’re looking forward to engaging with such an interesting diversity of topics over the two-day period.
