Interact 2019 – An Engagement Symposium for the Physical and Life Sciences is back!

by | Mar 12, 2019

Following the huge success of Interact 2017, we are pleased to announce this landmark symposium will be returning on Wednesday 4 September 2019 at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN) in Preston, Lancashire.

Spanning the physical and life sciences this event 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 space

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.
