Public Engagement at the Gurdon Institute

"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.  

We aim to inspire the young generation with low science capital regionally and nationally, enable communities to value and have confidence in fundamental research and make Public Engagement part of our research culture. We believe that we have a responsibility to contribute to society through our Public Engagement with Research programme by reducing the barriers between the public and our scientific community. Our programme and team is funded by Wellcome and the University of Cambridge.
