Public Engagement with Research


The UoS Festival team at the Public Engagement with Research unit oversees the design and delivery of two major public engagement platforms - the Southampton Science and Engineering Festival (SOTSEF) and Human Worlds Festival.

These high-profile annual events, with an international digital reach, are truly collaborative undertakings, bringing together teams of academic staff, students from across the disciplines and professional services and local cultural partners from the region.
