The word I keep hearing is wow!
Book ended by really spectacular speakers talking about good impactful research, with great speakers from the University of Portsmouth inbetween.  You could feel the synergy between doing research, and putting impact and energy into it to create something even more.

Very inspirational.

Bob Nichol – Acting Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation)

“It was fantastic to see so many examples of the links between Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust and the University shining through in the RIS conference. The diverse mix of inspiring speakers throughout the day demonstrated the importance of working with partners to deliver applied research that makes a real impact, and translational research in partnership with QA Hospital is a great way to achieve that.”
Matt Gummerson – Partnership Facilitator

“Great to see Postgraduate Research Students, Researchers, Professors and Deans all in the same environment sharing the impact that Research and Innovation has on us and society.”

Excellent #uopri2018 conference – inspiring and fun. Lots to love, but highlights were probably a chat with Jim Al-Khalili about Artificial Intelligence and meeting a student I’d helped who won an award for her poster pic.twitter.com/d3xVKJWQvF
