The new UK Acoustics Network Plus (UKAN+) grant, funded by the EPSRC and industry, starts on the 1st of April 2021. UKAN+ gives us an opportunity to do more great Public Engagement (PE) work. We are developing a more strategic approach. Doing this will create more impactful activities following PE best practice and a greater legacy from our PE work. We hope to work with the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE), using processes they have to build capacity and connections with audiences, leading to UKAN+ developing high impact PE work. The first phase of this, training acousticians in how to do great PE, will begin in spring 2021. Prof. Trevor Cox of the University of Salford will be leading this activity.
We are seeking two Early Career Acousticians to help develop this strategic vision for public engagement, one based in industry and another in a university. For more details and to apply, please click here. Note that the deadline has been delayed until 30th April 2021.
