About the BSHS Outreach and Engagement Committee (OEC)

Who are we?

The Outreach and Engagement Committee (OEC) coordinates and directs the Society’s efforts to promote the understanding of the history of science, technology and medicine in a wide range of  contexts, both formal and informal.

We do this through a variety of public events, supporting researchers to work with museums, festivals and schools, and through the provision of grants and awards. The committee also works to foster relationships between universities, museums and other institutions concerned with public engagement. To contact the committee, find out more about current projects, or discuss new suggestions, email [email protected] or follow BSHS Outreach and Engagement on twitter.
