Poster Day Online winners announced

Worldwide

The winners of this year’s University of Liverpool Poster Day Online have been unveiled after a record 120 entries.

The annual online showcase of Postgraduate Research students’ work is the worldwide equivalent of the Poster Day event which took place last month on campus.

This year entries came in from Postgraduate Researchers based away from Liverpool in the UK, in Europe and all other continents of the world, as well as those unable to attend Poster Day due to field work or conferences. The online event ensures that all off-site PGRs at Liverpool are able to showcase their work to a wider academic audience. All posters are visible on the PGR Development web site.

The top prize winners were:

The participants’ award for the most popular poster went to Lucia Brandi from the School of Histories, Languages and Cultures

The virtual event was open to view by colleagues at other Universities as well as staff and students within the institution. The showcase attracted more than 1000 comments and responses posted during the course of the event and generated over 91000 words.

Poster Day Online organiser, Dr Shirley Cooper, said: “Poster Day Online has been well received by participants as an opportunity to learn more about the research across the University and gain feedback. It’s a really important learning experience for PGRs on the virtual communication of research. The nature of the online event means that gives PGRs have more time to read and discuss posters and can provide considered and detailed responses to questions.”

Professor Graham Kemp, Health and Life Sciences Faculty Director of Postgraduate Research, said: “Once again the entires have been superb – the standard is very high and a credit to the individuals who took part as well as the University as a whole.”
