Academic staff and postgraduate research students are warmly invited to a new workshop designed to explore how public engagement with research can deliver as a pathway to impact, how to plan for it and how to capture it through effective evaluation.
Engaging with and involving the public in research, throughout the whole research cycle, can enrich the quality and the impact of university research. It also facilitates the enriching of lives on local, national and global scales as part of the University’s strategy.
This workshop will include case studies and perspectives from academic speakers in each of the three faculties. Some of the speakers have significant experience of participating in research funder’s panels, so perspectives from the funder’s point of view will also be discussed.
Coffee and tea will be available after the workshop to allow for networking and informal discussions.
Feedback from attendees will be requested afterwards, to help to inform and shape future activities to support academic staff.
The workshop will take place on Wednesday, 11 October, 2.30pm – 4.30pm at G-FLEX, Ground Floor Central Teaching Laboratory.
Students wishing to attend can register for the event via Eventbrite.
