Event description

Description

What's it about?

This workshop is for staff whose research involves the use of animals and who want to increase their confidence in talking about their research with the public.

It is important to engage people with scientific research but this can be difficult when your research involves the use of animals. It is hard to know what people will think, what sorts of things they might have heard and how to answer awkward questions that may be raised. This workshop will help you to develop the skills to confidently engage people with research using animals. It will prepare you for dealing with tricky questions and handling individuals with alternative views on animals in research.

The course will be run by Bella Williams from Understanding Animal Research, an organisation that explains why animals are used in medical and scientific research. They aim to achieve a broad understanding of the humane use of animals in medical, veterinary, scientific and environmental research in the UK.

Lunch will be provided.

Capacity: 15 places.
