Supporting community engagement activity

Get Involved

Our community engagement is a collaborative programme which brings mutual reward to the Edinburgh BioQuarter and our neighbouring communities.

There are many ways different ways to get involved and support our ongoing activities.  We are also keen to support activities and projects initiated by groups or individuals based in the neighbouring communities.

Current Opportunities

Do you work on Edinburgh BioQuarter?

We are delighted to have the support of volunteers representing a wide range of roles and organisations from across Edinburgh BioQuarter, including University research centres, the Edinburgh Clinical Trials Unit and life sciences companies based at NINE – Health Innovation Centre.

We hold regular recruitment call-outs for volunteers to support the delivery of activities, including our mentoring programme at Castlebrae Community Campus, Science Buddies, STEM Clubs and the Craigmillar Community Science Festival. Please follow this link to view current opportunities and get involved.

If you have an idea for a new community engagement activity that you would like to develop, please get in touch and we would be happy to offer support and advice.

Do you live or work in the local community?

If you live, work, study or are a part of a local community organisation, then we would love to hear from you and explore new ways we can work together.

From offering guided tours of our facilities and buildings, to creating workshops and events, there are many ways in which we can collaborate and help you explore our science.

We are also keen to support activities and projects developed in our neighbouring communities. Please get in touch if you have an existing project or a new idea and would like our support.

We have been fortunate to attract funding from a variety of sources. We would like to thank all our funders whether through direct financial contribution or in-kind.
