Research Posters

poster resources

CREST researchers and associates have produced posters on their latest studies, which are now available as a free resource.

Poster presentations are a common way for researchers to showcase their projects and share their findings. The combination of text and graphics allow researchers to communicate their work in a way that is visually interesting and accessible. Simplified overviews and concise explanations on why the research is important also makes for interesting reading and easy digesting, in comparison to lengthy essays or books.

winning postersWe’re really proud of these posters, and justifiably so as one of our doctoral researchers has just won an award for Best Poster at the 2017 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium hosted by Cranfield University – congratulations to Lynn Weiher. You can download Lynn’s poster here.

That’s why, as part of CREST’s mission in sharing research as widely as possible, we have made our researcher’s posters on security threats available as another free public resource.
