Developing Your Public Engagement Strategy WEBINAR



Public engagement (PE) is part of the research process; research and engagement go hand in hand, and good research meaningfully informs, consults, or collaborates. Importantly, public engagement isn't only about sharing your results – it is valuable at all the stages of your research. Knowing what your aims are helps you to know who you need to speak to. Asking yourself who you want to reach makes it much easier to decide how to engage them.
This workshop will give you the tolls and advice that you need to you to develop your own PE strategy.
