The programme will cover the context for public engagement with research, in the UK and further across Europe, and will provide knowledge and tools required to make tangible interventions in local and institutional settings. A major focus will be on methods and enablers to bring high-quality public engagement to the heart of a successful research leader.

The residential nature of the course, enriched by a family of course mentors, provides flexible and ‘offline’ opportunities to talk on specific challenges and reflect on personal contexts and plans.  Delegates will come from a diverse range of disciplines and European settings, making for rich networking and experience sharing.

The course will start at 12 noon on Monday 8 July and close at 15.00 on Wednesday 10 July 2019.
