April 25, 2019, from Georgina Bennett

Dear All,

Interact 2019 – An Engagement Symposium for the Physical and Life Sciences is back – Workshop closing date reminder

Thank you to everyone who has registered and put forward suggestions on workshops for Interact, we have had some fantastic proposals already. The closing date for Workshop submissions is Tuesday 30th April, we will then ask registered delegates to vote on these. The day promises to be lively and full of interest with something for everyone and an excellent networking opportunity too. There is also plenty of space for exhibitions in the market place and if you have something you would like to show, then let us know!

Spanning the physical and life sciences this event 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 STFC, IOP, SEPnet, RSC, RAS Ogden Trust and UCLAN are partnering together to develop an inspiring, challenging and refreshing programme on the following key themes:

• Evaluation & Impact and REF2021
• Reaching under-served audiences
• Schools outreach
• Sharing best and worst practice in a safe space

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.

We all look forward to seeing you there.
