Public & Policy Engagement

Give your research output visible global influence.

The Cambridge Infectious Diseases Interdisciplinary Research Centre values outreach to society as a chance to highlight the importance of infectious diseases research and to provide an interactive platform to discuss and shape the future of our work.

Research and Public Engagement

Through our programmes and initiatives, we are committed to ensuring that academic research reaches public and professional audiences. CID works closely with the University Public Engagement Team and with the Cambridge Bioscience Public Engagement Forum (connecting wider institutes in the Cambridge area) to provide engagement opportunities and resources targeting public audiences, secondary school and college aged pupils or their teachers. CID can assist in the development of concepts and evaluation metrics to add value and heighten the impact value of your outreach activities.

Research and Policy Engagement

Through our programmes and initiatives, we are committed to ensuring that academic research contributes to policy decisions. CID works closely with the Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP), and can assist in providing opportunities, advice and support in bringing together policy professionals and academics, to increase the policy impact value of your research.

Organisations or individuals or researchers interested in collaborating on outreach projects should contact the coordinator directly.
