Call for exhibits and activities at NERC Public Engagement Showcase 2020

19 December 2019

The NERC showcase events planned to be held in Wales in 2020 have now been postponed owing to the exceptional circumstances brought about by the coronavirus and a need to focus on COP26 activities in 2021.

We will aim to plan a NERC showcase in 2022 and will work closely with our partners in due course to plan this.

The assessment and delivery of Collaborative Research Projects will continue as planned. These projects and their outcomes will be incorporated into the 2022 showcase.

Scientist doing an experiment

NERC is offering an opportunity for researchers to run public engagement activities as part of our annual showcase 2020. The showcase will take place at Techniquest Science Centre in Cardiff in July 2020.

Visitors to the event will range from the general public, including families and young people, to policymakers and people that do not usually interact with science in their daily lives.

The environmental science showcase will comprise of approximately 20 hands-on exhibits, talks and debate, and science buskers. Through the exhibition activities, talks, debates and discussions, the event will engage visitors with research of the natural world, connecting a diverse range of people to environmental science, and the process of doing research.

The closing date for applications is 10:00 on Monday 10 February 2020.
