The University of Southampton was featured in a UK-wide campaign to highlight the value and importance of university research to our everyday lives.

Universities Week 2014 was launched on Monday 9 June 2014 at the Natural History Museum in London where a week-long public event showcased some of the best of UK university research. 

Researchers from the University of Southampton joined teams from 44 other UK universities represented at the Museum during the week. The exhibition included research stations, pop-up performances, debates and live research demonstrations, covering a range of research themes.

We highlighted our work on energy management as part of the University’s “Bringing Research to Life” roadshow. We demonstrated our AC Cobra electric test car and invited the public to run a virtual electric vehicle with their smartphones to help imagine a city of electric cars running off batteries and the electricity grid.
