About us

'Ideas for Life' is a compilation of 20 world-class research projects. The compilation was a main focus of activity during Universities Week 2014, a campaign that has been running since 2010.

From 9-15 June 2014, Universities Week opened up a national conversation about the relevance of university research and its everyday impact on our lives. Universities across the UK invited everyone to be inspired, get involved and discover the work that they are doing to improve the way we live our lives.

More than 250 public engagement activities took place at universities, museums and galleries across the UK. In addition, more than 28,000 people alone took part in a week-long series of engaging activities at the Natural History Museum.

Universities Week 2014 was run by Universities UK with Research Councils UK, the Higher Education Funding Council for England and the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement.
