UoB Goes Mad for CoCo

Our second Research at the Heart of Brum event took place on Saturday (6th July, 2019) as part of the amazing CoCoMAD Festival (Cotteridge Community Music Arts and Dance). If you’ve not heard of CoCoMad before, you might be surprised to find out that it’s now in it’s 23rd year and attracts more than 6,000 people to hang out, party and learn in the beautiful setting of Cotteridge Park.

Although lots of University of Birmingham researchers have gotten involved in bringing a bit of science to proceedings over the years, this year was the first time we’ve organised an institution-wide delegation, but it won’t be the last! More than 30 researchers came along to deliver activities and talks under our Research at the Heart of Brum banner, and engaged around 2,000 people.

We’ll update this page soon with some more quotes and feedback from the public once we’ve had time to crunch the data, but in the meantime, why not get a feel for how things went by checking out the photos below and taking a look at our #HeartofBrum Twitter feed.

For any researchers feeling inspired, our next Heart of Brum outing will be in Welcome Week on 26th September, so why not drop us a line and get involved?
