Public Engagement Network
For UCL staff and students

Welcome to the UCL Public Engagement Network. A combination of regular meetings and a monthly email newsletter, the network brings together UCL staff and students interested in public engagement.

By creating a network of likeminded people, we aim to inspire UCL staff and students to undertake public engagement, share different approaches to engagement and create a forum for exchange and interaction. We want to enable the sharing of knowledge, experiences and best practice and ensure that the support we can offer is known across UCL.

You can read overviews of previous events on the UCL Public Engagement Unit blog.

UCL Public Engagement Network sessions bring together all kinds of people from across UCL who are interested in public engagement: whether you’re an old hand or a complete novice please bring your experience and questions to what we hope will be lively, thought-provoking and participatory sessions.

Please note: these events are suitable for UCL staff and students or those others who are involved in running public engagement activities linked to research and teaching.

Upcoming events:
