Our commitment to public engagement

We believe that public engagement is essential to ensuring that our research is both relevant and impactful. We are committed to fostering excellent public engagement with our whole research portfolio, in a way that benefits both scientists and publics, in the UK and around the world.

As an organisation, we aspire to be leaders in specific areas of public engagement. In particular, we want to build on our existing strengths in citizen science, community engagement and public dialogue.

Public engagement and the project lifecycle

We recognise that research is a dynamic and iterative process, rather than a linear one, and that public engagement with our research may be appropriate at any stage of the research cycle – during the development, delivery or dissemination of research projects. We believe that public engagement with research should generate mutual benefit.
