Are you a physical or life  scientist or do you engage with STFC or use STFC facilities and doing outreach, public engagement and science communication? If so then the Interact symposium is for you! This is a one day opportunity for you to share your experiences, gain new skills, learn new ways to engage with your audiences, gain practical experience and see what else is out there that can help you develop and deliver high quality engagement.

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 and impact and REF 2021: How to do effective evaluation and demonstrate impact, sharing case studies, what worked for REF and what didn’t. Looking forward to REF 2021
  • Reaching under-served audiences: Working with the right  partners, raising  your skills and working with STEM influencers to reach low science capital audiences
  • Schools outreach: How to work with young audiences  and inspire them
  • Sharing best and worst practice in a safe space : Understanding your audience, reflective practice and what constitutes high-quality public engagement

The symposium is open to all STEM Science researchers including engineering and facility users. Attending can also contribute to your continuing professional development.
