The University of Reading was one of four UK venues that opened its doors in 2011 and invited everyone to find out about its research.


Researchers' Night is held every year at universities and institutions across Europe, showcasing areas of research and how it impacts on people's lives. The University of Reading was one of four UK venues that opened its doors and invited everyone to find out about its research. 

At Reading the theme was 'Language, text and power' – one of our multi-disciplinary research strengths in arts and humanities. A great number of free events and activities were organised around this theme for children of all ages and adults.

'Fantastic evening event yesterday for the #itpdebate. As an MFL teacher it gave me so much to think about'

'The way we do things here at Reading across all the disciplines involved in Researchers' night actually has a lot to contribute to public debate, to ongoing current issues.'

'We all immensely enjoyed the activities and we all thought that the Ure Museum and all the artefacts inside was very inspiring because we found out that the Greeks could make all the things we make by machines and we still used today by their hands.'

Our European corners will tell you about links between Reading and the European Union.
