Hunterian Associates Programme

The Hunterian Associates Programme, University of Glasgow provides an inventive platform for postgraduate researchers to share their expert knowledge with a wider public audience and to develop their experience and skills in public engagement. By developing creative ways to discuss and debate their ideas with the broader public, Hunterian Associates enhance their perspectives on their own research, and explore ways in which their subject knowledge connects to the University’s collections and their histories. The programme has inspired and informed the development of new collaborations where researchers gain tangible experience working with industrial, cultural and heritage partners. In 2013, the Programme was nominated for a prestigious Times Higher Education Award in the Outstanding Support for Early Career Researchers category.
