We want our research to be responsive to society so that there will be genuine benefit from its applications. Involving the public in our work can bring fresh perspectives and help us communicate better.

We carry out a wide range of ad hoc and regular engagement activities with a variety of audiences.

We offer a summer work experience programme for Year 12 students at Oxfordshire schools, and we usually take part in the annual IF Oxford festival.

Two of our divisions are particularly involved in engagement activities: find out more on the MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit website and the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging website.
