Abstract: Academic staff from 18 different departments and institutes gathered for a forum to present and discuss their research interests. The research disciplines spanned science, art, entrepreneurship, social studies and engineering. The symposium was held on January 30th, 2014 in the Conference Room at University House, Msida campus, University of Malta from 3:00 to 5:30 pm. The meeting consisted of two sessions of 11 speakers each presenting a brief 4 minute overview of their research and professional interests with an intermission for socialising and networking between colleagues. A kaleidoscope of topics were presented including the design of intelligent transport systems, lanthanide crystal engineering, youth and social wellbeing studies, surface coatings for mechanical gears and historic artifacts, dance studies, genetically modified fruit flies for studying neuromuscular disease, creativity and entrepreneurship, fluorescent intelligent molecules, input-output economic analysis, antioxidants, auxetic materials, gender studies, blood disorders and food safety. The symposium promoted multi disciplinary collaborations while developing new friendships. Participants were invited based on contributions to research, society and gender balance.
