In 2018, Mark Panton won a Birkbeck Public Engagement Award in the Phd/Early Career category. Judges applauded his consultative work with affected communities. In this blog post Mark shares some details of his project and his involvement with the Awards.
The Birkbeck Public Engagement Awards recognise and celebrate researchers undertaking innovative and exemplary public engagement activities. In particular, we celebrate research that builds on Birkbeck’s tradition of socially engaged research and the College’s historical mission to engage with a wide and diverse range of people outside of academia.
Entries are now being accepted for the Birkbeck Public Engagement Awards 2019. Shortlisted entries and winning projects will be recognised at the Birkbeck Public Awards Ceremony on 26 March 2019. Read about last year’s winners here.
