Engage and inspire with discovery science

Public engagement at the Crick
Visitors at an Art and Science workshop


Science is hugely important to our future, and at the Crick, we believe that everyone should have the chance to explore and help shape it.

That’s why we’re committed to engaging, enlightening and inspiring people about our pioneering research and why it matters to our health, the economy and society.

As Europe’s biggest biomedical research facility under one roof, our size, location and profile means that we have a unique opportunity to share our work with the general public, schools, our local community and beyond.

The Crick is an open door for curious minds. A place that brings the public and our researchers together. Where through our vibrant public programme of free events and exhibitions, you can explore what goes on behind the scenes and gain fascinating insights into the Crick’s research.

And by engaging the public, we aim to create a diverse community which has a voice in conversations about biomedical research that can mutually benefit us all.

The people who work here are incredibly amazing at explaining things to you, what their work is and how things actually work. It’s brilliant!
