In the Graduate School, we’re excited to be launching our sixth annual Images of Research competition. The first to be fully digital! Join us as we browse images that capture the diversity of research here at UoN.
The event takes place on: Monday 4th March between 5-6pm in the First Floor Exhibition Area, Creative Hub, Waterside Campus.
Professor Matthew McCormack, Head of the Graduate School, will open the competition with a short presentation at 5pm. On the evening you can vote for your top three entries, but if you can’t make it, don’t worry. There will be further opportunities to vote and view the exhibition on the plasma screens around campus from 5th March to 5th April, and to vote and view online via the Research Support Hub! More details will follow …
A larger version of the launch poster with more information, and a chance to remind yourself of last year’s winning entry can be seen here. For catering purposes, please email Melanie Petch Melanie.Petch@northampton.ac.uk if you would like to attend on the evening. By all means, do circulate to anyone who might be interested.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Her research is on the Genetic Predisposition to Achilles Tendinopathy. All welcome.
We are currently in the process of implementing a Current Research Information System, named Pure, which will become the new platform that you engage with to upload your research outputs… And a whole lot more!
As part of this process, whilst the public facing side of NECTAR will remain, your use of it will come to an end!
I realise how busy you are with Waterside… So in a bid to make this an easier transition, from the 1st of August please do NOT put any items into NECTAR.
If you have a journal article or conference proceeding with an ISSN number that is accepted for publication from the 1st of August until Pure is launched, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and our team will ensure it is uploaded to meet HEFCE’s open access requirments for the REF (Research Excellence Framework). Please email as soon as it is accepted to allow our team adequate time to meet these requirements.
If you have any other research outputs accepted or published during this time, please hold on to them until Pure is launched! (Expected to launch late October).
Don’t be alarmed… Training will be given in how to use Pure – which is a much more user friendly platform than NECTAR in due course.
If you have any questions or concerns relating to this please email email@example.com
The Research Support team will be wandering over to Waterside on the 1st of August… Our calendars are always up to date and open to all… So feel free to invite us to meetings at locations of your choice!
Head of Research Support

Our Research team from the Computing Department and Moulton College are developing a sensor to detect lameness in sheep. Associate Professor Dr. Ali Al-Sherbaz will be appearing on the BBC One – The One Show tonight at 7pm. Tune in to find out more about this research, how this infection costs UK farming about £80m/yr and whether the solution could lie in a ‘Fitbit’ for sheep.
All staff have access to Yammer… Kind of like facebook for work… In order to give Researcher’s at our University a dedicated space for interaction, helpful files, presentations, links etc, a Research Support group has been created, including information on the REF and RDM. Feel free to join & access these resources! (https://www.yammer.com (log in with your Uni username and password)).
