We aim to inspire and inform secondary school students seeking career opportunities in biomedical science and medicine via a coordinated and evolving set of programmes and resources (www.cardiff.ac.uk/medicine/push).
Secondary School teachers are the key to increase the scientific level of young people. The activities developed in the last two years show that researchers and teachers collaboration can lead to design new outreach activities and have shown the importance of defining particular activities to improve teachers training.
Polling over the last decade has consistently shown immigration to be one of the five most important policy issues for the public in Britain, yet the quality of public debate on the subject has often been characterised by assertion rather than evidence, and simplistic readings of what evidence has been put forward.

Clarity of purpose: The SHARE with Schools project (SwS) brings together three overarching objectives in line with Welsh Government and Cardiff University’s strategic objectives: these are widening access to university, meaningful/participatory community engagement and the development of employability skills for undergraduate and postgraduate students. The project was established in January 2011 and has been developed and trialed by a highly capable team of paid SHARE postgraduate students.
The project “Il Linguaggio della Ricerca (LdR)” (The Language of Research) is promoted by research scientists of the Bologna Research Area of the Italian National Research Council (CNR) and by the National Institute of Astrophysics (INAF), both of them active within the framework of several scientific disciplines. This project is active since 2003 and has grown over the years with new research scientists, new teachers, and hundreds of high schools students (14-19 years) (see LdR-history).
There are around 7,000 (mostly deliberate) grassfires in Wales each year which endanger lives and property; impact local businesses, tourism and the countryside; and destroy wildlife and forestry resources. Such deliberate fires cost South Wales Fire and Rescue Service (SWFRS) around £7m annually.
