Public Engagement at the Gurdon Institute

Our mission is to make our fundamental biological research accessible and responsive to the public for the mutual benefits of inspiration, knowledge-exchange and trust. 

"Public Engagement describes the myriad of ways in which the activity and benefits of higher education and research can be shared with the public. Engagement is by definition a two-way process, involving interaction and listening, with the goal of generating mutual benefit." - National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE). 

In December 2020 we were awarded a Silver Engage Watermark by the NCCPE, recognising the strategic support for public engagement across the Institute, as well as the plans to develop this work in the future.

Do you have an idea for a collaborative public engagement project with our scientists? The Gurdon Institute is always open to co-creating new projects. 



Throughout the year, the PE team organises a range of opportunities for Gurdon Institute students and staff to get involved in Public Engagement with Research (PER).
