Public Engagement

Here at Warwick we're committed to helping all staff and students talk with the public about their research, and supporting the whole university to become a welcoming destination for the community to make use of our excellent facilities and enjoy time on campus.
We have two opportunities: funding for PGR- Led conferences and the Research Harambee in June each year

New for 2019: RSSP Research Harambee

Harambee is Swahili meaning working together, pulling together, helping each other, caring, and sharing.

The Harambee will be held on June 19th and will involve both Undergraduate and Postgraduate Research; talks, presentations and posters, and will be organised and run by both UG & PG colleagues.

The event will see talks on My Research, My Research Methods, Posters from both PG & UG Researchers and presentations from the Widening Research and Participation Project; a Students as Research Partners project.

We hope to invite in our colleagues and friends from across Warwick, our local community and also some of the local schools to show how exciting a research career can be.

It is a great opportunity for Warwick UG & PG researchers to showcase their research to a broad and diverse group, and for the audience to be inspired by what is happening across Warwick.

We are recruiting 4 Developers - please go to Unitemps; closing date 5th April, interviews 10th April, first meeting 16th April.

Please return here to keep updated on the new event.

The 3MT ( Three Minute Thesis) Competition is being hosted and organised by the Grad School for 2019. Please keep posted for more details.

The RSSP Research Harambee will replace the PGR Showcase and Poster Competition.

PGR-Led Conferences

How about organising your own conference?

For 2018-2019 we will support 7 conferences - up to a maximum of £300 each conference. We support conferences that are designed and delivered by yourselves and are of benefit to your PGR colleagues.

We also prefer that, if possible, your conference is interdisciplinary and open to the wider population of the University and our community.

We do not have a closing date. Each application is assessed on merit and we will fund seven events. Preference will be given to new events.

Applications are now closed 11th March 2019.
