Universities Week has produced a video to highlight how university museums engage the public with research.
During Universities Week, 9-15 June 2014, universities across the UK are inviting everyone to be inspired, get involved and discover the work that they are doing to improve the way we live our lives.
A number of public engagement activities will be taking place throughout the UK, including at universities, museums and galleries in your local area. A week-long series of engaging activities will also take place in the Darwin Centre at the Natural History Museum in central London.
Universities Week 2014 is being run by Universities UK with Research Councils UK, the Higher Education Funding Council for England and the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement.
