The Parkside Building, 5 Cardigan Street
Birmingham, B4 7BD
+ Google Map

Alchemy is normally associated with the transmutation of matter. However, it also resonates closely with the many transformations that take place in research - from the ordinary to extraordinary, worthless to invaluable, abstract to tangible, tacit to explicit, accidental to creative.

Alchemies of Research is a one-day conference that invites you to consider your research as…
