Public Engagement

Engaging the public in the scientific dialogue related to the issues around environment and health is vital to maximising the impact of our research beyond the realms of policy and academia. The Centre supports its researchers in a range of public engagement activities and also organises several Centre-wide events that showcase our research as a whole.

The Centre's strategy for public involvement and engagement is led by the MRC Centre's Public and Community Involvement Engagement and Participation (PCIEP) Coordinator, Dr Ian Mudway, supported by the public engagement officers in the two associated NIHR HPRUs, Dr Diana Varadena and Ms Antoinette Amuzu, and by the joint PCIEP Committee.

Joint Public and Community Involvement Engagement and Participation (PCIEP) Committee

The Joint Public and Community Involvement, Engagement and Participation (PCIEP) Committee consists of representatives from each of the partners in the MRC Centre and the HPRUs, led by the PCIEP Coordinators in the two HPRUs. It is responsible for coordinating and supporting the activities of the Public and Community Oversight Group (PCOG), and for the implementation of the PCIEP strategy and activities, co-developed with the PCOG.
