URSS news

URSS Public Engagement Initiative

We are pleased to announce that the URSS will consider applications for Research + Public Engagement or Public Engagement only projects for the 2022 session. This may take one of two forms

1) A research project with a public engagement element . This means you would complete your research project first then design a public engagement activity to share your results. This activity may take place after the summer research period.

2) A public engagement-focused project. This could mean that you design an engagement initiative to share research, rather than doing the new research yourself.  

If you would like to include a public engagement element please indicate this in your application. WIE can offer advice and support for public engagement and we strongly advise you to contact them before you make your application at or

Public Engagement Initiative

Warwick Institute of Engagement (WIE) provides a bridge between the University’s research community and diverse people living and working in communities outside the University. Engaging with the public can enrich researcher's work and highlight it's impact and relevance beyond the University campus. Dialogues between researchers and communities can lead to stronger research, better lives and lasting relationships.

If you have an idea or feel your research could lend itself to public engagement activity, WIE are offering training and additional support to those interested in developing a Public Engagement initiative.
