Connections: science, poetry and the brain

The Connections project is led each year by Lucy Cavendish College, in partnership with AstraZeneca. This year the project brought together eight scientist-poet pairs, school children, students and the general public for a one-off inter-disciplinary event.

Dr. van Harmelen was paired with poet, Richard Berengarten. After discussing the R&R group’s research Mr. Berengarten chose to create a poem about the HOPES project – read the full poem here
