Research Day 2017 Countdown




WIT Research Day is an annual event that brings together postgraduates from across the six schools of the Institute, to showcase the breadth and depth of research activities being undertaken and the knowledge generated by such. It also serves to enhance the understanding of postgraduate research across the Institute and to provide postgraduate researchers with an opportunity to look outside of their own discipline and explore alternative research areas. This year, 2017, will be the 8th running of the event and it promises to deliver some wonderful insights into the research of our postgraduate community.
