MVLS Engagement Team - Alison Caldecott and Dr Becky Hothersall

The MVLS Engagement team of Alison Caldecott and Dr Becky Hothersall is helping MVLS staff and students share our research and work with public audiences.‌ 

MVLS Engagement Team

The MVLS Engagement Team was established as part of the  Wellcome Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF3) 2017-2021 to help embed and expand a culture of public engagement within the College of Medical Veterinary and Life Sciences and across the University of Glasgow.

The team is working with engagement and communications staff across the College, and the wider University, to develop funding support, training opportunities and engagement resources, together with new staff reward and recognition programmes.  

They also offer opportunities to create and share the learning from the many quality and impactful engagements MVLS staff are already delivering.  

The team is supported by the Wellcome ISSF3 Public Engagement (PE) Subcommittee and a network of MVLS engagement contacts.
