How to engage – information for members of the public and Schools

How to engage – information for members of the public and Schools

Our academics are keen to share their knowledge, expertise and skills with the public to have a positive impact on the world around us. Public engagement is all about learning from each other for mutual benefit.  Typical activities include: lectures, festivals, competitions and exhibits; stakeholder discussion and debate about research and policy; working with the public and communities to shape and inform the research we do; involving groups of people as researchers or providing evidence to inform the work they do; supporting schools and inspiring the next generation to achieve and realise their full potential. Please get in touch with if you can’t find what you’re looking for or you would like to find out more.
