Public Engagement Surgeries

The Centre for Public Engagement runs regular fortnightly public engagement surgeries where you can pick the team's brains about projects, funding, logistics and more. The CPE team are aware of many of the different programmes and resources, so these offer an opportunity to find out about other similar activity across QMUL.
