Content

The field of science and communication and public engagement with science is currently enjoying unprecedented growth.

This is driven by a greater need to demonstrate the impact of publicly funded research, the need for research to be valued, increased government scrutiny and a desire for stronger evidence base for policy. Many career opportunities are emerging at the interface between scientific research and various public groups.
