We organise a variety of events throughout the year aimed at the academic and business community. We also run events that engage the public with our research, and train our researchers to do the same with our public engagement training.

As an organisation, and as part of Research Councils UK, we also support and attend events run by external organisations such as the Technology Strategy Board and the Parliamentary Office of Science & Technology.
