We believe that research institutes have a responsibility to contribute to society through their Public Engagement activities and that they have much to gain in return.

We are committed to sharing knowledge, resources and skills with the public, and to listening to, and learning from, expertise and insight from the different communities we engage with.

We are funded by the UK public. Listening, understanding and discussing their views about the impact of science and technology on our society is both our responsibility and our privilege. Through Public Engagement we can inspire people of all ages, gain insights, and share tools that help make sense of a complex and changing world.

Our Guidance for Public Engagement with Research policy standardises terms of reference and coordination of Public Engagement activities carried out by staff and students from the Quadram Institute and sets out our commitments in this area.
