The research forum aims to initiate discussion amongst FSA staff and PhD researchers;  to identify common research themes, initiate funding bids, encourage collective work and the diversification of research initiatives within the school.

In the last academic year talks covered a diverse range of subjects reflecting the comparative and interdisciplinary nature of current research being undertaken in the field of Art. The Research Forums is open to all staff and researchers at Falmouth University, with an emphasis on art and cross-disciplinary work.
