Solent Research Challenge

The Solent Research Challenge is an annual live research project within the Southampton area. Each year we’ll launch a different project so that cumulatively a rich dataset for Southampton will emerge. 

This initiative is intended to encourage student and staff volunteers from across the university, giving students, in particular, an opportunity to experience being part of a live research project with strong public engagement elements. 

This year, primary investigator Paul Rutter is exploring the range of ways people are regularly involved in local music-making, to accurately measure the Musical Life of a City. With a city-wide survey, we aim to recognise and support local music-making in all its diversity.

The survey is ongoing from 10 March - 1 April and will be held in popular music establishments around the city in an attempt to collect regionalise and localise data. 

To take part in the survey, go to
