Press release issued: 16 May 2005
A new website showcasing Bristol University's research capabilities goes live today.
A new website showcasing Bristol University’s research capabilities goes live today. At the single click of a mouse from the ‘Research’ link on the University’s home page, visitors to the site can now get a feel for the sheer breadth and depth of Bristol’s research activity.
www.bristol.ac.uk/researchreview is an easily accessible, regularly updated showcase of articles about current research projects at Bristol. It is an online ‘sister’ to the University’s re:search publication which appears three times a year and features lively articles by University academics on their current research interests.
The re:search website will provide a wide audience of academics, students, journalists, stakeholders and the general public with an up-to-date window on Bristol’s research activities. As far as we are aware, Bristol is the first university in the country to have created such a site.
The University also has an online Directory of Experts, a user-friendly database containing the details of more than 200 of the University’s academics who are willing to talk to the media on a wide range of subjects from Aerodynamics to Zanzibar. The Directory can be found at: www.bristol.ac.uk/media/experts
