Research Councils UK have announced the Strategic Support to Expedite Embedding Public Engagement with Research (SEE-PER) programme.
The aim is to help HEI’s and Research Institutes embed Public Engagement within their organisations and to address identified challenges stopping it being embedded.
I’m a Scientist is offering to partner with an applicant or multiple applicants for SEE-PER to help address issues of:
- Supporting Public Engagement in Research
- Motivations for PER
- Making PER sustainable
We have a strong track record in public engagement not just with the event itself, but in the follow-on activities carried out by all participants. One clear message that comes from participating scientists is that they want to do more Public Engagement and the evidence is that they do go on to do more engagement.
We would like to work with HEI’s and Research Institutes to investigate why I’m a Scientist acts as a boost to researchers public engagement activities.
This partnership research could involve RCT’s to compare future public engagement activities; qualitative approaches to investigate the comparative differences between online engagement and performance based engagement or a look at the benefits of remote engagement to help researchers connect with communities normally out of reach.
We’d love to have a conversation about how the I’m a Scientist event can work with you on a SEE-PER project. Please give Shane a call on 01225 326892 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
