Scientific research generates a wealth of intriguing images that capture the interest of people of all ages and from all backgrounds.  Images can provide a non-threatening starting point for building a deeper understanding of scientific concepts and can catalyse new ideas. Some of them are just stunning!! 

NRP 218 HiRes NRP 218 A new planet

Overall winner of the NRP image competition entitled 'A New Planet' by Dr Thomas Louveau, John Innes Centre.



SAW uses high quality images regularly in schools as a hook to encourage children to participate in practical science and to make personal responses through poetry and art.

We are delighted that an image library has been built where images can be downloaded for free by anyone.  To launch the library, a competition took place over the summer inviting researchers to upload images to be in with a chance of being one of twelve selected for the 2016 NRP calendar. 

A mixed judging panel was assembled to pick the top twelve and then the NRP CEO Dr Sally Ann Forsyth was asked to pick the overall winning image which has been printed onto a large canvas and displayed in the new Centrum building on site.

The Norwich Research Park (NRP) is a partnership between the University of East Anglia (UEA), the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH), four independent world-renowned research institutes namely the John Innes Centre (JIC), Institute of Food Research (IFR), The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) and The Sainsbury Laboratory (TSL).  It is also home to over 40 businesses and therefore produces a rich diversity of interesting images.
