Event: Public engagement for your research and career (11th March)

Wednesday 11th March (10.00 – 16.30), University of Surrey Stag Hill Campus

Public engagement is becoming ever more important within academia, as researchers are expected to be accountable, approachable and relevant. It can be personally rewarding, expand your skills and confidence, and open up new avenues of publication, funding or employment.

The University of Surrey is running an entire day of training and expert discussion in collaboration with the university’s Community and Public Engagement team. Workshops will include working with external partners, media skills, planning public engagement into your research, REF impact case studies and much else. The panel discussion will give the views of experienced professionals and researchers at different career stages and from diverse organisations.

University of Sussex doctoral researchers are invited to attend for the full day or only select sessions (with lunch provided).

This is an opportunity to share best practice. Surrey staff and speakers from several external organisations will present on diverse aspects of public engagement – from getting started to planning research impact, making funding bids to teaching and writing for diverse audiences, community building to festivals.
