PEARL 2019


At PEARL 2019 Conference, 12 speakers – including PEARL 2018-19 Grant-holders – shared an extensive and diverse range of exciting activities they are carrying out engaging the public with research.  Quick-fire 10 minute talks inspired delegates with new ideas and innovative practice – see below for videos. 11 new PEARL grant-funded projects for 2019-20 were announced, followed by a Wine Reception & Poster Presentations.

“It was great seeing speakers from different backgrounds share and celebrate the outstanding range of public engagement with research activities that are taking place, and staff and students having a chance to discuss ideas in the reception, ask questions, be inspired and create new partnerships.” – Sarah Harris, PEARL Research Assistant
