Outreach and Public Engagement Network (OPEN)
OPEN is a community of outreach and schools liaison officers who want to build effective and sustainable links with their local schools and colleges. The Institute supports OPEN by administering an online forum and organising twice-yearly meetings.
Meetings are held twice a year and the agendas are set in discussion with OPEN members. Meetings are by invitation only and are designed to support the work of outreach and schools liaison officers from university physics departments and national research laboratories.
The programme for the November 2016 meeting can be viewed here.
See details of Previous OPEN meetings, including presentations.
OPEN online forum
The forum is open to outreach officers and school liaison officers from university physics departments and national research laboratories. As well as providing a space where members can share experiences and ask for advice, posts are welcome from all members on topics including:
• News about upcoming meetings and events to support outreach officers
• Details of resources published by the Institute and other organisations for use at events or during outreach.
• Details of funding opportunities for universities or organisations carrying out school outreach activities.
