What is Public Engagement?
Public engagement is defined as
"Public engagement describes the myriad of ways in which the activity and benefits of higher education and research can be shared with the public. Engagement is by definition a two-way process, involving interaction and listening, with the goal of generating mutual benefit.“ –National co-ordinating centre for public engagement
At the heart of our mission to deliver impactful and meaningful research is sharing our science with the local community as well as wider audiences. Some of the public engagement initiatives we are involved in include;
- Women in Science in Scotland Exhibition @ RSE
- Academy of Medical Sciences #MedSciLife campaign
- Medical Research Scotland Meet the Researcher
- Curiosity Live at Glasgow Science Centre
- Soapbox Science
- The Departure Lounge
- SIPBS Science Rocks (twitter: @SipbsSciRocks, facebook @SipbsScienceRocks)
- Glasgow Science Festival – My Favourite Guinea Pig
