Birkbeck scholars and collaborators were recognised for the ways in which they work with the public and non-academic communities to make their research accessible and to include non-academic expertise in their research practice.
Join us at Birkbeck’s Public Engagement Awards on Tuesday 26 March to celebrate projects with a public engagement focus from across the College. There will be drinks, nibbles and a chance to network after the ceremony.
