Public Engagement

Doors Open Day

Public engagement is central to research at Heriot-Watt university. Our researchers engage and involve a wide range of communities in their research, 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. We must engage with the world outside of the university to ensure our research addresses societal challenges, connects with people’s lives, and is meaningful and relevant. 

Read more about our strategy to embed engagement in our research culture, and see some examples of our activities through our case studies.
