Interact 2019 – An Engagement Symposium for the Physical and Life Sciences
Following the huge success of Interact 2017, the UK’s Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and partners are pleased to announce this landmark symposium will be returning on Wednesday 4th September 2019 at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN) in Preston, Lancashire.
This event, which spans the physical and life sciences, offers something for everyone with an interest in improving their public engagement capabilities. It will provide a fantastic opportunity to learn new ways to engage with your audience, explore the barriers to engagement and discuss how the engagement landscape is changing. But above all, it will be a chance to share your experiences with like-minded people in a fun and friendly environment.
The STFC, IOP, SEPnet, RSC, RAS, Ogden Trust and UCLAN are partnering together to develop an inspiring, challenging and refreshing programme on the following key themes:
- Evaluation & Impact and REF2021
- Reaching under-served audiences
- Schools outreach
- Sharing best and worst practice in a safe place
The detailed content of the day will be co-created and you will be able to vote on proposals by fellow delegates, so get your thinking caps on!
UCLAN is a fantastic location with state-of-the-art facilities, including a fully-functioning laboratory for experimental demonstrations and activities, and a completely kitted-out performing arts facility including a dance stage.
Full registration details and more information will follow in early 2019.
