On Wednesday 7 January 2015, we showcased some of our finest researchers and launched our new Research Strategy as Yorktalks returned for its second year.

The day began with a formal welcome from the Vice-Chancellor Professor Koen Lamberts, followed by the launch of the University Research Strategy by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research, Professor Deborah Smith. This was followed by four sessions in each of which four speakers presented their research and took questions from the audience.
