Staff and Postgraduate Research (PGR) students are invited to the next Public Engagement with Research forum.
The event will take place at 2.30pm – 4.15pm on Wednesday, 1 February in G-FLEX on the Ground Floor of the Central Teaching Laboratories (CTL). Coffee and tea will be available from 3:45pm, to allow for networking and informal discussions.
The rationale behind this forum is to provide the University community with opportunities to share best practice in public engagement, as well as to access advice and practical support, and a networking space.
This session will support the launch of the 2017 round of University-funded public engagement with research awards, offering grants of up to £2,000 in support of projects that engage the public with Liverpool research.
There will be three short presentations showcasing projects which received University funding in the 2016 round:
- Environmental research studies within the Mersey estuary – Philip Knight, School of Environmental Sciences
- Science in creative writing competition for young people – Dr Greg Lyanall, School of the Arts
- My Northern Powerhouse: Exploring Public Attitudes to a Government-driven agenda – Dr Alex Nurse, School of Environmental Sciences
Abstracts for these, and the other projects funded in 2016 can be found here.
Additionally, there will be information on how the scheme will run in 2017, with timescales.
People wishing to attend need to register their place, by ordering an e-ticket from the registration page.
