We encourage researchers to integrate public engagement activities into their everyday work and foster a culture where engagement is entwined into research design; facilitating researchers to collaborate with, consult and inform the public about our research and why it matters.
The National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE) provides support and resources for researchers and research support staff. Their annual public engagement conference is worth attending and they publish an open access journal, Journal For All
The Oxford Brookes Public Engagement Network’ drives interdisciplinary projects across faculties and provides training, opportunities and funding to support engagement. To join, email email@example.com
Our HLS ‘Jump Start Award’ funding scheme helps support projects. So far, we have funded workshops involving patients, to events with local athletes, teachers, and family workshops that resulted in the launch of the Brookes Infant Feeding Network.
Our Faculty Research Engagement Officer supports broadening our research awareness and can advise on external outreach opportunities, local communications contacts/networks specific to your subject and supporting your news via in-house social media channels.
The Research Office houses a central repository for collecting information about our researcher's public engagement projects and news.

The Oxford Brookes Science Bazaar is a one-day event promoting STEM activities, work and research taking place across the University. It brings together over 100 staff and students who plan and run a range of enthralling activities across the Headington Campus; from building rocket cars to testing your balance and much much more! Over 2,000 local parents and children have attended in previous years.
We host regular free public lectures. Inaugural lectures are showcase talks by HLS researchers newly promoted to Professorial posts. The Annual Research Lecture is a prestigious event in the Faculty calendar where we welcome eminent and inspirational external speakers to discuss their lives in research. Previous speakers have included Sir John Bell (Regius Chair of Medicine; University of Oxford), Sir Paul Nurse (Chief Executive and Director of the Francis Crick Institute), Dame Theresa Marteau (Director of the Behaviour and Health Research Unit at the University of Cambridge), Sir Jim Smith (Director of the Wellcome Trust) We are pleased to announce that Dame Professor Sue Black will be delivering our next Annual Research Lecture on 6 May 2020, ' Anatomy and forensic anthropology: hand in glove'

Our researchers go beyond the walls of the University to reach as wide an audience as possible. We are proud to be regular contributors to events, including Oxford Festival of Nature, SoapBox Science, A TOM Festival IF Oxford Science and Ideas Festival. We participate in outreach events at local Oxford University Museums who welcome our researchers in providing hands on activities and/or talks, ultimately contributing to showcasing the broad spectrum of research across Oxford and beyond.
