The Public Engagement with Science Unit is located in the University's Office of External Affairs. At the University of Aberdeen, we strive for excellence in everything we do, including our research and teaching but also engaging with wider society. We're involved in a dynamic partnership in the North East of Scotland, involving key partners such as Satrosphere and TechFest-SetPoint. We also work with partners around the city and into Aberdeenshire.
We provide support to our own staff and students wishing to promote their research, or science generally, to a public audience. Our strategy for public engagement with science was passed by the University's senior management in 2008 and can be viewed here. This involves making available help and opportunity across areas such as generic skills provision, development and delivery of events, partnership building and applying for funding. We work on a day-to-day basis with other colleagues in our three academic Colleges: College of Life Sciences and Medicine, College of Physical Sciences and the College of Arts and Social Sciences.
We also liaise with our generic skills, press and policy teams and communications team regularly to ensure our events and activities are well publicised. Check out our events pages for forthcoming listings.
