Event description

Description

Interact - an engagement symposium for the physical sciences.

Registration is now open for Interact 2019, an Engagement Symposium for the Physical and Life Sciences.

Following the huge success of Interact 2017, the STFC, IOP and SEPnet, RSC, RAS, Ogden Trust and UCLan are co-hosting the event to develop an inspiring, challenging and refreshing programme on the following key themes:

Evaluation & Impact and REF 2021
Reaching under-served audiences
Schools outreach
Sharing best and worst practice in a safe space

This event, which spans the physical and life sciences, offers something for everyone with an interest in improving their public engagement capabilities. It will provide a fantastic opportunity to learn new ways to engage with your audience, explore the barriers to engagement and discuss how the engagement landscape is changing. But above all, it will be a chance to share your experiences with like-minded people in a fun and friendly environment.

The detailed content of the day will be co-created and you will be able to vote on proposals by fellow delegates so get your thinking caps on!

UCLAN is a fantastic location with state of the art facilities, including a fully functioning laboratory for experimental demonstrations and activities, and a completely kitted-out performing arts facility including a dance stage.

How do I register?

This event is free to attend but you will need to register in advance.

We will invite attendees to co-create the content of the programme by voting on suggested sessions. To have the chance to vote please register by 30 April 2019.

There will be exhibition space/laboratory facilities and a performing arts studio available for you to demonstrate your outreach activities in the marketplace. Space is limited with only a set number of slots available.

Please consider running a session to share knowledge and expertise with others, and to harness the expertise of those in the room. On the registration page you can submit a proposal for the session/talk/exhibition/workshop you would like to run based on the themes shown above.
