A key part of FutureNeuro's Public Engagement programme is to raise public awareness and understanding of the centre’s research and the roles it plays in society. A key part of the planned programme is to encourage the public to get involved and interact with science, technology, engineering and maths.
Some areas we will initially be focusing on are:
- Greater public understanding of the brain – reduced stigma of diseases
- Patients engaged in design of research
- Increased pursuit of STEM careers by young people from disadvantaged schools
- Contribution to best practice among healthcare professionals
