Public Engagement with Research Conference

This inaugural one day event, which took place in July 2018, was an opportunity to be inspired, to learn, to be challenged and keep up to date with the cutting-edge of PER Practice and policy.

Selected sessions were filmed and are available on our youtube playlist.

"One thing I have come to appreciate is that public engagement is a life-long learning endeavour – there are always opportunities to learn and improve one’s practice; to innovate and to try something different. 

- Professor Alison Woollard, Academic Champion for Public Engagement with Research, University of Oxford

The next Public Engagement with Research Conference will take place in 2020.
