Monday 9 June - Friday 13 June 2014
For one week only, the Natural History Museum will play host to Universities Week 2014. A celebration of the most cutting-edge research will take place in the Darwin Centre. The event will also include a late opening in the Central Hall on 11 June.
Universities impact every aspect of our lives and we benefit from them on a daily basis – from the lifesaving impact of medical discoveries to the digital innovation that has changed the way we listen to music.
As the national focal point for Universities Week 2014, the Natural History Museum will be showcasing some of the most cutting-edge university research around, including the Museum’s own work investigating the natural world.
For one week only, you will be able to take part in a series of engaging and inspiring activities. From meeting researchers to discussing the latest societal issues, you can learn about how UK university research is helping to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges.
