Life Solved returns for 10th series

Mapping microplastics in our coastal waters, how to solve the UK’s water supply crisis, the evolution of cybersexualities, and how fashion and the internet are changing the status of women in Iran are some of the ideas and innovations that feature in the new series of the University of Portsmouth podcast Life Solved, which returns this New Year.

In each weekly episode, researchers talk in-depth about the work they’re doing and how it is changing everyday life for the many.

With the ideas unpacked in straight-talking chat, Life Solved is set to spark conversation for curious thinkers and those who like to be in the know on the latest innovations in technology, medicine, the environment, social theory and beyond.

Research at the University of Portsmouth was rated as world-leading in the latest national assessment of the quality and impact of research in UK universities and is home to several high-profile innovation hubs, including the Centre for Creative and Immersive Extended Reality (CCIXR), Revolution Plastics, and the Quality of Life, Health and Wellbeing Research Group.

Professor Jeremy Howells, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research and Innovation, said: “I am proud to say the University is leading the way in many areas of research, both nationally and internationally. The Life Solved podcast helps lift the curtain on the incredible strides our staff and students are making, and gives the public a chance to hear how these achievements impact their day-to-day lives.”

Life Solved series 10 launches this week on Thursday (5 January) with an episode exploring the power of public perception in the fight against climate change.
