Outreach is any activity by means of which the progress of the consortium is made known to the general public. The VPH-CaSE researchers are committed to making ground-breaking research that improves everyone’s lives, it is our desire that our research doesn’t remain in the lab, but is made available to all, in terms anyone can understand. Outreach activities are of a wide variety, they range from conferences and talks, to shows and expositions, to public engagement events in restaurants and pubs. Basically, any means of scientific communication to the non-scientific community is, for us, an outreach possibility.
During outreach activities, researchers make an effort to present science in an interesting manner; this includes interactive activities that the public will remember after the event has passed. These events present complicated scientific principles in an accessible and intuitive manner, so that people from all ages and abilities can appreciate their impact in their day-to-day activities. Ultimately, it is our goal that the visitors feel as enthusiastic about our work as we do ourselves.
