PEARL 2018 Conference
The inaugural PEARL 2018 Conference showcased the exciting range, extent and diversity of public engagement with research that takes place at the University of Lincoln.
Staff, students, partners and collaborators alike attended 11 quick-fire 10-minute talks sharing research and events sharing research with people beyond the University. Topics ranged from face-learning tasks; robotics; musical practice and migration right through to preserving and sharing experiences of the Bomber Command.
Professor Carenza Lewis (Professor for the Public Understanding of Research) then announced the successful 9 activities engaging people in research which were to be granted PEARL funding, following stiff competition and an assessment panel.
To complete the celebrations, Vice Chancellor Mary Stuart CBE announced and awarded those individual student, staff and teams nominees who had been selected by a panel to receive a new Vice Chancellor’s Public Engagement with Research Award to rapturous applause.
Poster Presentations & a wine reception followed offering the opportunity to further showcase current projects, ask questions, discuss, network and, most of all, celebrate public engagement with research at Lincoln. The room had an exciting buzz, paving the way for the future of engagement at Lincoln.
