KRI: Kroto Research Inspiration

Celebrating and championing the creative communication of research.


In July 2015, Professor Sir Harry Kroto (1936 - 2016) and Lady Margaret Kroto joined us to launch the Kroto Research Inspiration initiative, which celebrates and champions the creative communication of research.

The University has built on Sir Harry’s enthusiasm, and now runs a range of research communication competitions for PGRs and early career researchers, as well as offering a range of training and development opportunities, to help our brilliant researchers share their stories with the world.

Our annual researcher showcase allows researchers to share their work with people outside the university, and is where we announce the winners of our research communication competitions.
