How to run a public engagement event


Our MRC Festival objectives are:

  • To engage the MRC community to increase understanding of the MRC’s strategic aims and their own contribution to these
  • To build trust in medical research by sharing MRC-funded research with others
  • To increase awareness and understanding of the benefits of medical research to society
