We inform, interact and inspire, through a strategic series of engagement activities, to raise awareness of the value and impact of our science to the public and our stakeholders.
WE ACTIVELY SEEK PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT OPPORTUNITIES
We communicate our science strategy and research outcomes accurately, and honestly, and embed engagement throughout our research and innovation programmes.
OUR SCIENCE, OUR PEOPLE
We provide support (guidance, opportunities and resources) to our research staff and conduct a programme of initiatives targeted at communicating our strategy and outputs to different audiences. Through engaging with them we build collective understanding of the societal benefits and impacts of our science.
REACHING, MEETING AND INFORMING
Our public engagement activities are varied but include: public open events and displays at key public and stakeholder events; hosting visits and engagement activities; public dialogues and the development, wide use and dissemination of bespoke communication and engagement materials. Through these means our scientists highlight the value of research and innovation and their role and responsibility in generating evidence.
WE ENGAGE IN TWO-WAY COMMUNICATION
We are always transparent regarding our work and consider and acknowledge diverse points from groups voicing concern, engaging with them in two-way communication in an organised manner wherever possible.
