Science Communication

This programme is delivered jointly by Northumbria University and the Centre for Life. This partnership will provide a balanced technical and theoretical programme aimed at maximising outreach and public engagement work in science. It is increasingly important that developments in science, medicine and technology are effectively communicated to enable individuals to form an informed opinion.
