Training and support

Each semester, we host a series of training sessions to help researchers in understanding the meanings of public engagement with research and how to incorporate measurable impact activities into their work; to inspire staff through sharing of impact success stories; to encourage non-research active staff or those with no experience of PE to become inspired to give it a try; to understand that engagement is often now required for many funding agencies; to learn fundamental skills to help with engagement.

Previous training sessions include: blogging your engagement; good practice in social media for public engagement; PE panel with case studies.

Please join our mailing list to hear about all the latest public engagement training sessions.

We are actively seeking individuals to share their successes or provide training. If you are interested, please email us.
