Be Curious 2017

The submission process for Be Curious 2017 has now been launched, calling on staff to submit their proposals for activities for the event.

After last year’s success of Be Curious, a University-wide open day showcasing our research into health and wellbeing, it is now an annual research open day. Be Curious 2017 will take place on Saturday, 25 March 2017. The theme this year is ‘About Leeds and Yorkshire’. The aim is to demonstrate the value of the University of Leeds to the people of Leeds and Yorkshire by highlighting research that is conducted on, with and for Leeds and Yorkshire.

Staff members are invited to disseminate their research findings, inspire others, get the public involved in their research or let the public shape our research proposals. Maybe you have an idea for a live research project on the day? Researchers and staff involved from all of the research themes across the University are welcome, and we want to get as many partners across the city and region involved as possible. Activities can be in the form of hands-on demonstrations, short talks, performances, live research activities, games or any other forms of inspiring, involving and interesting the audience. It is planned that Be Curious 2017 will take place in the Parkinson and the Michael Sadler buildings but suggestions of activities elsewhere on campus will also be considered.

Please submit your ‘Expression of interest’ by 21 October 2016 using this form.  Entries will be considered by a panel and a decision will be made by w/c 14 November. For successful entries a more detailed submission will then be required.

For any further information or questions please email the Public Engagement team.
