Public Engagement

Two-way dialogue with public and patient groups provides opportunities for mutual learning and ensures that we are tackling the clinical challenges that matter most.

The Wellcome / EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences work across a wide range of public engagement activities, from patient advisory groups and co-produced patient events to national festivals and artist collaborations.

It's what allows us to broaden, exchange, and test knowledge and experience, shaping research with new and lived insights. It also improves how our research is translated, making sure that our work is informed and accepted by those it effects.

On these pages you will find a range of our current and previous projects, as well as information about how we support this activity through a supportive environment for public engagement and our dedicated strategy, linked to the centre's key aims. 

If you're interested in taking part, or just hearing more about our work, just let us know.
