Public engagement support for Cambridge Global Food Security Members

UK Research Councils are clear on the value of public engagement and the role that it can play as a pathway to impact. Guidance from RCUK states:

"Public engagement may be included as one element of your Pathway to Impact. Engaging the public with your research can improve the quality of research and its impact, raise your profile, and develop your skills. It also enables members of the public to act as informed citizens and can inspire the next generation of researchers."

We can help members of the IRC to organise and promote public events relating to their global food security research, for example talks, debates, hands-on activities and film screenings. If you have an idea, please to discuss it.
