Creative engagement, impact and dissemination in research with children, young people and families

About this event

Engagement, dissemination and impact are at the heart of everything we aim to do in Fuse as a Centre for Translational Research.  Various different methods and tools are being used and explored across Fuse to achieve these aims, including creative participatory methods to engage with children, young people and families, and the use of podcasts, infographics, animation, theatre, poetry and everything in between.

What will I gain from this?

This event will showcase some examples of creative methods being used to engage with children, young people and families in research, as well as dissemination and impact activities. Learning from these examples will be shared by members of the Fuse Early Life and Adolescence Research Cluster.  There will be an opportunity for discussion, questions, and answers.
