Public engagement with research

Information for researchers

From our award winning Law clinic to collaborating with the University of the Third Age on ageing and memory studies, the University is committed to engaging with the public.

We aim to maximise the positive impact our research can have on society and, in particular, our local communities. Our goal is to be embedded and invested in our region, and to help Kent thrive.

Public engagement is not a one-way conversation, however. It is about collaboration, dialogue, innovation, and team work. Whether you are a senior academic, an early stage researcher or a public engagement professional, I encourage you to think creatively about the world around you and how we can apply academic research to make it better. Browse through the web pages. Generate ideas. Make connections with the wider community and innovate.

By engaging together, we can contribute positively to our local communities and accomplish things that will be mutually beneficial to all of us.
