This week marked the launch a brand new and exciting website for the Public Engagement Working Group (PEWG). Whether you would like to read about various case studies, see who the champions are or find out about the latest events, this website is the place to go for all things Public Engagement at the University.
There are a plethora of events occurring nationally for PE and this September, Birmingham welcomes the British Science Festival where PEWG would like to share the most innovate and creative pieces of research. ‘Less talk, more action!’ is about asking academic staff to produce a short 4 minute video based on the research conducted at Birmingham, which will be understandable to a general audience. To note some examples, this could be in the form of a presentation, interview, role-play or any idea that will portray research in a fun and interesting way. The best videos will receive prize money of £200.
Deadline for submission is at midday on Friday 30th May 2014. For more information, visit Think: Public Engagement.
