From 2017-2019, Heriot-Watt University was funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) to create, enrich and embed cultures within higher education institutions where excellent public engagement with research (PER) is more effectively and strategically supported.
The Strategic Support to Expedite Embedding Public Engagement with Research (SEE-PER) project, led by Prof. Garry Pender and Dr Laura Wicks, enabled us to explore the barriers and challenges to engaging the public in our research, and embed mechanisms to address these challenges.
We used an evidence-based approach to embed public engagement within the University strategy and management priorities. We consulted widely with stakeholders about how we can truly create a culture where public engagement is valued and supported – both internally within the University, and within our local communities.
