Public Engagement

Sharing and explaining our science has always been recognised as an integral part of the remit and responsibility of all our scientists. We are keen to communicate our passion for scientific research to members of the public, to people of all ages and from all educational backgrounds. We are eager to invite you into the world of discovery – a world that is primarily funded by you - and introduce you to how we work, what we hope to achieve and help you to understand how together we are changing lives.

To us, public engagement is by definition a two-way process, involving interaction and listening, with the aim of sharing mutual benefit. By engaging with each other we hope to learn as much from you as you do about us – we believe that this is the best way forward for true social and scientific progress.

Our Public Engagement Projects aspire to create a culture of knowledge sharing and communication by accessing the widest possible audience through a variety of technological and artistic media ensuring that the understanding of science is delivered in a variety of novel and stimulating ways.
