The Pirbright Institute receives strategic funding from BBSRC


We take part in science festivals and agricultural shows across the UK and host site visits for members of our local community. We speak at various venues about why it remains necessary to use animals in research for improvements in animal and human health, an activity supported by Understanding Animal Research.


We contribute to science days and festivals aimed at primary and secondary schools in Surrey, and participate in a number of careers events. We also visit local schools to engage with secondary school students on the use of animals in research. We partner with Surrey SATRO and STEM Surrey/Berkshire to facilitate interactions with school students and a number of our staff are registered STEM Ambassadors.
