Researchers, academics, professional support colleagues and students provide a diverse programme of events, activities and festivals.
This programme also includes online resources including podcasts, teaching materials and short films.
Through these activities we aim to communicate the work of the University to a wide range of publics in a mutually beneficial two-way process. By inspiring, informing, listening and discussing together we hope to shape the futures of our local and regional communities as well as our University.
Public engagement (PE) is coordinated centrally by a Public Engagement Network (PEN), led by Professor Linda King, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research and Global Partnerships.
PEN acts as a central hub for PE enabling us to work with publics to improve and guide our programme, as well as offering support and encouragement to staff to enable the integration of PE in all areas.
The Public Engagement Network (PEN) offers a range of support for staff interested in public engagement including small grants, central and external training, awards and guidance.
