Engaging the public with research through novel collaborations
Tuesday, June 14, 2016 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Reaching the public with research findings can be difficult. This event focuses on novel ways that audiences can engage with academic research, offers advice on raising funds to support these projects, and offers networking with a difference!
The event will help you think in a new way about your research as well as offering an opportunity to see how stand-up comedy, football, or even trapeze may help you reach a wide audience. Speakers include, a neuroscientist collaborating with an artist to use the human body as a canvas to raise awareness of mental illness; and an economist who engaged with a range of businesses to setup her own currency in Brixton.
The event will provide a relaxed and informative environment to hear about fascinating projects and to get you thinking about how you can involve the public with your findings outside of the academic world.
