Engage: public engagement in practice: Wed 3 May

All are welcome at the annual Engage: Public Engagement in Practice event on Wednesday 3 May, 1 – 4pm, in the Chancellors’ Building.

Hosted by Professor Jonathan Knight (Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research)) and overseen by the University’s Public Engagement Unit, Engage recognises and celebrates the diverse range of engaged research taking place across the University.

Attendees will get a sneak preview of 42 entries we received for this year’s Images of Research competition, entries that showcase research from across 14 academic departments. They will also be able to vote for their favourites.

Alongside the chance to meet fellow researchers and a range of community representatives from local organisations that the University collaborates with, attendees can watch the live finals of this year’s Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for Public Engagement with Research.

Six finalists – postgraduate researchers and academic staff who have demonstrated excellence in engaged research – have been challenged to engage us with their research and to talk about the benefits of engagement. The challenge is they have only six minutes to do so!

The finalists are:

  • Dr Janet Goodall (Department of Education)
  • Dr Justin Rogers (Department of Social & Policy Sciences)
  • Dr Afroditi Stathi (Department for Health)
  • Daniela De Angeli (Department of Computer Science)
  • Emma Sackville (Department of Chemistry)
  • Rob Wortham (Department of Computer Science)

Drinks and light refreshments will be provided.
