THINK CORNER

March 22 – April 20, 2014

Think Corner is a ground-breaking public engagement project which will take research out of the confines of campus and instead showcase it directly within the local community for a period of one whole month. Think Corner will be a ‘pop-up’ shop in the city centre that will provide a space for the research community to engage the public of Birmingham in a two-way dialogue about research: encouraging discussion about the value and importance of University of Birmingham research and the roles that the public have to play in benefiting from or helping shape this research.
