The Open University at 50 logo

This exhibition provides an overview celebrating 50 years of research at The Open University, using a mixture of content from The Open University Archive and OU Research.

It looks at the beginnings of research in the earliest days of the OU; introduces a selection of notable researchers and groups from across the University's history; explores some specific aspects of research activity over the years; and finally focuses on some of the current and future projects which continue to put the OU at the forefront of research.
