Outreach 

We are committed to delivering a wide-ranging outreach programme aimed at schools and the general public.

As leading researchers we have a major responsibility to contribute to society through public engagement, and we have much to gain in return. We are committed to sharing our knowledge, resources and skills with the public, and to listening to and learning from the expertise and insight of the different communities with which we engage. We are committed to developing our approach to managing, supporting and delivering public engagement for the benefit of staff, students and the public, and to sharing what we learn about effective practice.
