University of Reading Research Blog

About Connecting Research

The Connecting Research blog showcases the breadth and richness of research at the University of Reading. Here you can find short and accessible reads on topics across our research themes of Agriculture, Food & Health, Environment, Heritage & Creativity, and Prosperity & Resilience. In these blogs, researchers at all stages of their careers offer evidence-based commentary and analysis on topical issues and societal problems, explore the contexts and collaborations which inform their work, and explain the impact and benefits of their research.
