We have recently signed the Manifesto for Public Engagement, which has been developed by the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE).
We consider public engagement central to our mission and we have embedded a culture of public engagement throughout the research lifecycle.
Our research strategy upholds our commitment to “maximise the intellectual, scientific, economic, social and cultural impact of our research, and to engage with research users as appropriate throughout the research process."
Our researchers are involved in a wide range of local, regional, national and international public engagement activities, events and training programmes.

Why we’ve signed up
“Signing the Manifesto is an important commitment for Bath to make and one which will challenge us to ensure that we fulfill its aims and make the University a leading centre for innovations in public engagement”.
Professor Glynis Breakwell, Vice Chancellor
"The University of Bath is pleased to be a signatory to the Manifesto for Public Engagement. We fully support the aims and are committed to sharing our knowledge, resources and skills. We are already very active in this area and we look forward to working closely with the National Co-ordinating Centre to further enhance our work through involving more staff and students from across the University in the challenging but very rewarding process of engaging as fully as possible with the public.”
Professor Matthew Davidson, Whorrod Professor of Sustainable Chemical Technologies, Associate Dean for Research
