University of Bath

Public Engagement Unit

We promote a culture of engaged research throughout the University. We support researchers to involve non-academics with their research.

What public engagement is

'Public engagement is the myriad of ways in which the activity and benefits of higher education and research can be shared with the public. Engagement is by definition a two-way process, involving interaction and listening, with the goal of generating mutual benefit.’ – National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement

Aims of Unit

Our mission is to nurture a positive, inclusive, and empowering culture of high quality Public Engagement with Research (PER).

Four strategic aims guide our work:

  • to enable University of Bath staff and students to undertake effective PER
  • to reward, recognise and publicise high-quality PER
  • to mobilise a range of diverse and impactful PER activities
  • to keep Bath at the forefront of national and international PER agendas
