If you’ve been out and about on campus over the past couple of weeks you can’t have missed our inaugural Festival of Research. The month-long festival seeks to celebrate research activity in its entirety, as well as enabling us to share knowledge with each other and the wider community.

From power breakfasts to eco-rambles, virtual reality to pursuits in the park, the festival had something for everybody. We invited Dean of Research Professor Karl Dayson and Researcher Development Coordinator Davina Whitnall into the studio to tell us more about the events and our wider Research strategy.

You can stream the podcast below on Soundcloud or even subscribe to Salford Speaks on iTunes (just search 'Salford Speaks'). As always we’d love to hear your feedback so do get in touch at

Don’t forget the festival runs until the 20 July so there’s still time to catch some events if you haven’t already – the Festival Closing Tea Party in Salford Museum and Art Gallery on Friday is not to be missed! Find the full schedule here.
