Public Engagement - Why, Who, and What?

Lucinda Spokes, Head of Public Engagement, Office of External Affairs and Communications, University of Cambridge

Public engagement is increasingly seen as an important part of a research career. It can inform and inspire and, when done in collaboration with communities and stakeholders, it can improve research and make it more relevant. In this session we’ll introduce you to the why, who and what of public engagement, ways to plan an effective project and outline the support and opportunities available to you at Cambridge.

The training session will run from 2 pm to 3:30 pm will include a presentation and practical exercises and will be followed by tea, coffee, cake and networking from 3:30 to 4 pm.

Run jointly with the Global Food Security IRC., in the Main Seminar Room, DAB
