Keele Conference of Undergraduate Research

The Keele Conference of Undergraduate Research (KCUR) previously known as the JADE Student Learning Undergraduate Conference (JSLUG) is an annual event arranged by the Keele Institute for Innovation and Teaching Excellence (KIITE) for undergraduate students to showcase their research.

KCUR's mission is to provide a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to gain first-hand experience of presenting at an academic conference. Students can submit abstracts for a 20-minute oral presentation, a 5-minute lightning talk or a poster presentation. 

A virtual KCUR 2021

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, KCUR couldn't take place in its usual format. However, we still wanted to celebrate the hard work put in by our students and staff, and so we've brought some of the conference online, as a lasting legacy and celebration of the work of our talented Keele students. 

On these pages you'll find abstracts and narrated presentations (video format) from some of our KCUR 2021 cohort.
