Engage Researchers Academy 2019-20

logo (1)

The Engage Researchers’ Academy is a year long professional development programme for researchers with a passion for public engagement. The programme creates a challenging but supportive environment for delegates to reflect upon what it means to be an engaged researcher, and to explore the quality and value of engagement. It also supports participants to develop the skills and experience to work with others and improve the impact and relevance of their research.

The first Engage Researchers’ Academy cohort will meet in Bristol for three two-day sessions. Academy one focuses on Engaged People, Academy two looks at Engaged Practice, while Academy three explores Engaged Quality and Value.

Each Academy session offers a stimulating mix of presentations led by leading engaged academics, research funders and policy makers; practical workshops and masterclasses; debate and discussion; opportunities to practice skills; and peer-supported learning. Mentors with expertise in public engagement with research, impact, evaluation, and community engagement are available to provide one-to-one support.

The Academy is aimed primarily at early to mid-career researchers with experience of engaging the public with their research. It aims to equip participants with understanding, skills and practical experience to enhance the impact of their engagement and to become leaders in engaged research. It is suitable for academics based at higher education institutions or research institutes in the UK. In order to attend, you must have the support of your departmental, college or faculty lead.
