For the public
Rothamsted Research is committed to public engagement and encouraging debate around our research on sustainable crop management and its environmental impact.
Many of our scientists have extensive experience in science communication and we encourage younger scientists to follow that lead. We frequently initiate and participate in a variety of public engagement activities; creating opportunities for dialogue with a wide range of audiences including the local community, agricultural stakeholders, policymakers and industry bodies, through open events at all three of our sites (Rothamsted, Broom's Barn and North Wyke), external talks, the Rothamsted Open meetings series and exhibitions at national events.
We engage with primary and secondary schools and work with the STEMNET national scheme, in which we have circa 50 STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Maths) Ambassadors. Through this scheme and our programme of activities for schools we aim to enthuse the next generation of scientists.
See more information about our public engagement activities below. Please note that we normally hold open weekends every four years.
