Research Councils UK (RCUK) has released a podcast which discusses the importance of engaging young people in science and research, following the launch of its School-University Partnerships Initiative (SUPI). The initiative, which exceeds £3.5 million in total, is funding 12 projects over the next three years, each of which involves a variety of activities to develop longer-term engagement between universities and schools. The initiative builds on the Research Councils’ work to embed public engagement in the higher education sector and aims to create structured and strategic mechanisms for universities and local schools. It will support researchers’ direct engagement with the students and the teachers to bring cutting edge research into the classroom and enhance and enrich the curriculum.
