Ever fancied churning butter like the Romans? Have you ever wondered why food smells so appealing? Do you know what portion sizes children should eat? How does cooking help refugees retain a semblance of home? 

These are some of the questions which researchers are exploring at the University of Bristol. Research without Borders brings postgraduate researchers working in a variety of areas – food, community, technology, health, identity, quantum engineering – together for a free day-long exhibition. Over 50 interactive exhibits are open for you to get your hands on, and you can also talk to the researchers behind making the work happen. You’ll also get a chance to explore research-inspired artwork from local Bristol artists.

Join Research without Borders to celebrate the weird and the wonderful, ask questions to emerging researchers, and stay curious about the wider world around us.

  • ​Become a biological engineer for the day

  • Eavesdrop on crocodiles
  • Discover the big ideas behind tiny nano-particles
  • Learn how to fold proteins
