Supporting researchers to engage

‘Public engagement’ describes the myriad of ways in which the activity and benefits of higher education and research can be shared with the public.

Engagement is a two-way process, involving interaction and listening, with the goal of generating mutual benefit.

These pages are designed chiefly for researchers at the University, with the aim of inspiring and supporting the embedding of public engagement activities within research and teaching. No matter whether you are new to engaged research or have been practicing it for years, we hope you'll find something of interest and use. You can also visit our blog.
