Engage, Educate and Enhance
Discover our public engagement work
Our 3Es public engagement initiative is to Engage, Educate and Enhance our local communities. We utilise the research expertise of our academics and the knowledge and enthusiasm of our students to run projects that have a positive impact on our communities.
About our work
From working one to one with scientists to using forensics to solve murder mysteries, our activities for young people are always interesting, cutting-edge and cover a range of scientific subjects for audiences of various ages and backgrounds.
Alongside our work with schools and young people, our researchers offer their expertise to help develop innovative solutions with public health and industry partners. We also offer training to non-medical prescribers and other healthcare professionals. Our research is also influencing EU legislation on toxic chemicals.
