LSE Research Festival

LSE's Research Festival is a celebration of the creativity that lies at the heart of all research. This year, the posters, films, photographs and apps entered by research students and staff from LSE, Cambridge, SOAS and UCL formed a brilliant showcase of work that engaged fellow researchers and general public alike, some 500 of whom visited the exhibition on 1 March in LSE's New Academic Building.
