In this section we aim to provide details on all of the support available to researchers in developing their public engagement ideas and activities whether you're just starting out, or have extensive experience in public communication. If you already have a good idea of the kind of activity you would like to develop or be involved in discuss this further please Contact Us.

Just starting out? If you're new to public engagement or want to enhance your communication skills you may wish to visit our training section and also investigate the list of national schemes, which can organise activities for you. Our Getting Started page will also give you some idea where to begin engaging with the public about your research.

For experienced communicators: You may wish to speak to us regarding funding and collaboration opportunities. We also recognise and reward researchers for their achievements.

For event organisers: If you are planning your own event or activity related to your research you should visit our funding section.

For Research Leaders: RCUK, the Wellcome Trust and other funders now encourage and often require research grants to contain plans to maximise the research impact. Visit our research grants section to find out more.
