Take your research to the stage!

December is peeking around the corner and with it the prospect of 2019. There are lots of exciting ways to engage different publics with your research, and to learn a new skill along the way.

Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas

The Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas (CODI) has become an anchor of the Edinburgh engagement calendar. If you want to tread the boards, and share your research with a Fringe audience, this is the match for you! CODI involves a structured training programme which gives researchers the opportunity to find a ‘dangerous idea’ in their research, and also the practical elements of stagecraft.

The call for applications closes on 7 December.
