Public Engagement Support for Researchers

There are many benefits to be gained from engaging the public with research, ranging from encouraging people to actively think about science and to better understand the relevance of it to their daily lives, to increasing your profile, enhancing and developing your skills and opening up new opportunities for collaboration. 

Engagement activities can be very varied in their forms, so thinking about the kind of activity undertaken will vary depending on the purpose of the engagement.
