All staff and students at the University of Liverpool are invited to join us for a morning of inspiration as we look back at some of the incredible public engagement and involvement work our staff and students have been involved in.

We will hear from three award winning public engagement practitioners who will also join a panel discussion about the challenges in engaging the public during the coronavirus pandemic.

Professor Joanna Verran
Emeritus Professor of Microbiology at Manchester Metropolitan University, Professor Verran was awarded the 2019 Mani L. Bhaumik Award for Public Engagement with Science from the American Association for the Advancement of Science. This prestigious, global award recognises an individual’s contributions to public engagement. As her Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education remarked, "Jo advocates public engagement as an academic discipline".

He provides public engagement training to universities across the UK and for the NCCPE.
