JIC and Public Engagement

It is essential that our world-leading scientists develop dialogue on the social impact of their research and that they are able to participate in public to discuss in a global context issues that face us all:- food security; health and environmental sustainability. Thus, engagement is an integral part of our science mission.

A key objective is to inspire the potential ‘next generation’ of scientists, and citizens more generally, with the pervasive importance and relevance of this science to their lives.
