The annual Research and Innovation Conference has been well established as a cornerstone of Southampton Solent University’s growing profile in research and innovation. Now in our fifth year, we are very pleased to be introducing enterprise as the third core strand of the event, in conjunction with VentureFest South.

The conference offers a fertile environment for developing research, innovation and enterprise, promoting the exploration of new ideas and establishing and strengthening partnerships. The conference is free and open to anyone who wants to share ideas and explore how change and progress can be achieved through research-based activity.

Keynotes and platform sessions will welcome a range of experts, stakeholders and partner organisations. We look forward to receiving contributions from students, researchers and other stakeholders, both internal and external to the University. We will also be hosting the awards ceremony for the Solent Futures Student Entrepreneur Awards.
