Are you interested in engaging the public with Warwick's work? This could mean anything from communicating research to the public, outreach and widening participation, working with communities; to accessing research funding and improving the impact of research.
A new Public Engagement Network is being set up, creating a professional network aimed at forming a broad community of interest and best practice focusing on public engagement activity at Warwick. Open to all staff with an interest in public engagement, the network will enable better information sharing and collaboration across traditional university silos in this area.
The group will provide a platform for interested colleagues to learn from best practice internally, and improve awareness of internal (and external) funding opportunities / support, as well as helping improve general communications and relationships between network members.
Pro-Vice-Chancellor Professor Christina Hughes will launch the network at an inaugural 'mini-summit' on Monday 13 May 2013, 12-2pm in the Wolfson Research Exchange. Lunch is provided.
