The aim of the survey is to establish how the sector currently supports and values public engagement, and to help understand the triggers and barriers to involving personnel in public engagement activity. The findings will help inform the Beacons for Public Engagement (BPE) initiative (funded by the UK Higher Education Funding Councils, Research Councils UK and the Wellcome Trust), which has been set up to encourage the sector to embrace this activity in both strategy and culture.
They are interested in the views of staff within both BPE institutions and those who are not in BPE institutions because they want to see what sort of public engagement activity is happening across the sector.
If you want to influence funders and have your views about public engagement heard, then complete the survey by Friday 9th April.
If you have any queries regarding the completion of the e-survey, please contact Zeb Nash at Oakleigh (firstname.lastname@example.org).
