Public engagement can do wonderful things for research, but what is its scope and how do you get started? Join our informal meeting on Wednesday 22 March in room R2-09 (Rochester Building) from 13.00 to 14.30 to be inspired by colleagues across Schools based at Medway. Our speakers will talk about:

  • Examples of engagement activity undertaken in Music & Fine Art, Sport & Exercise Sciences, Social Work and Social Policy, and Pharmacy
  • The potential benefits of engagement as a researcher/for research
  • Some of the challenges in engagement and how they might be managed
  • Lessons learned that may help you in planning your own engagement activities

These brief summaries will be followed by an open discussion on engagement and the opportunity to ask any questions that you have about colleagues’ work or public engagement in general. A sandwich lunch and refreshments will also be provided.

If you’d like to join us, please let us know by emailing
