Engagement

We aim to engage with a wide audience about the real-world impact of our research and provide opportunities for two-way communication.

Engagement is a key part of our work. For our research to be effective, it's essential that it relates to the experience and needs of real people.

It's also important we share our findings with health and social care professionals, as well as policy makers and third sector organisations.

We are also passionate about working with children and young people to inspire the next generation of neuroscientists.

How we engage

Cub scouts

Scouts and Guides open evenings

We hold regular open evenings for local Cub Scout groups, giving children the chance to be a neuroscientist for a night.
