Relevant Research - May 2021

Welcome to this month's issue of staff and student research stories. Many of these stories give examples of how our students are simultaneously learning and working with communities, organisations and individuals to contribute to our Vision, making the world a better place. This month we thought you might also be interested to read about the well-deserved recognition given to a project by our first year Design students during lockdown last year.

We invite you to join us for the first of this year's professorial lectures, on Tuesday 22 June. Associate Professor Lesley Gill is speaking on the topic "Exploring practical perspectives of emotional intelligence: Harnessing the power within".
