Public engagement

Engaging the public about the Centre’s world leading research and highlighting its impact and societal implications will be embedded in the Centre structure. Public engagement will inform our research, and enhance our teaching and learning. Every member of the Centre will be strongly encouraged to take part, underpinned by adequate support.

We plan to stimulate debate on issues affecting our patients, and to create strategic partnerships with patient and public groups. This will allow us to ensure research advances make a difference to the lives of patients and their families.

We plan to develop our engagement activities around:

  • Patient activities and events
  • Public activities and events
  • School activities and events

Our partners include: Science Gallery London, Evelina Children’s Heart Organisation and the Biomedical Research Centre.
