Public Engagement training for engineers: Bath, 30 October

Burgers & Bioreactors – public engagement training for engineers: Bath, 30 October

The University of Bath is running a training event for engineers who want to develop skills in public engagement.

The goal of this day-long (9.30 – 17.30) workshop is to provide you with a platform to question and discuss the wider social, ethical and aesthetic implications of your work.To register for this event, contact Amy Phillips.

To elicit this, the case study of in-vitro meat will be used. You will explore the obstacles and opportunities as in-vitro meat moves from the R&D lab to the dinner plate. How will interactions between logistics, engineering and society shape the public acceptability of cultured meat?

Engagement in Research June 12 – 13th change of venue!

Hello all,

This is just a short update to notify you that we have had to change venue due to an issue with our original booking clashing with rehearsals that we’d been unaware were happening nearby. The Role of Engagement in Research events this June 12- 13 will now take place at 52 Pritchatts Rd – Lecture Theatre 1  – Building G9 (Red) on the campus map. All sessions will be held here.

Thanks to everyone who has signed up already, we look forward to seeing you there. Keep spreading the message to your colleagues in the meantime, as we’d like as many people as possible to benefit from these sessions!

Best wishes,

PEWG
