Bridging the gap between science and creativity

The University is showcasing the ways in which its cutting edge research is used by businesses at an event (The Art of Science) at its Canterbury campus on Friday 21 April 2017.

Visitors will experience first-hand the University’s world leading research into innovation, creativity and enterprise. The event, which is part of World Creativity and Innovation Week, will showcase the University’s cross-disciplinary approach to developing projects with external partners, and how the latest developments could be adapted to businesses.
