Research impact

The Chinese Educational Module Resource (EMR)on public engagement of science created and promoted by my ESRC project was endorsed by Dr Zhiqin Du, Deputy Secretary General, Chinese Medical Association. In her analysis of how to improve ethical governance in China at the British Academy, Dr Du singled out EMR as ‘an excellent experiment’ and expressed that the CMA looked forward ‘to joining forces in the promotion of this topic in China.

The 7 pilot lectures of the EMR are arguably the first attempt to develop an educational resource on public engagement training that speaks to Chinese particularities. It aims to fill the gap of public engagement training in Chinese science curriculum.
