People at Meet the Scientists event

Public engagement

The Faculty is part of a dynamic and vibrant community that we interact with as much as we can.

We offer a variety of opportunities throughout the year for the public to engage with our research; including talks, festivals, workshops, focus groups, Pint of Science and Meet the Scientists.

Meet the Scientists is an award-winning series of events we host in partnership with the Liverpool World Museum, supported by the Wellcome Trust. The annual Pint of Science festival is extremely popular and takes place in May in pubs and bars worldwide.

Our engagement activity welcomes all ages and abilities and takes place locally and internationally. No prior scientific knowledge is required, just the enthusiasm to get involved.

Public engagement describes the myriad of ways in which the activity and benefits of higher education and research can be shared with the public. Engagement is by definition a two-way process, involving interaction and listening, with the goal of generating mutual benefit.
