“I’ve certainly benefited from the early career researcher training workshops and events organised by the Domain. I particularly like the opportunity to engage with other researchers and discuss a topic in an informal small group setting. They are also ideal opportunities for meeting researchers from different departments and to learn about their research interests and experiences.

Public Engagement for Early Career Researchers (this will be an online session)
As greater emphasis is being placed on involving the public in research and sharing the benefits of research beyond academia, funding for this type of activity is still limited, especially in the arts, humanities and social sciences. However, a lack of funding should not dissuade people from engaging in this vital work. This interactive online seminar will use lecture style content, case studies from UCL researchers and activities to explore how people can employ the three main methods of public engagement (inform, consult and collaborate) in a meaningful way, but on a ‘shoestring’ budget. The session will be relevant to all ECRs so people from any discipline would be able to benefit. There will be case studies from science, social sciences, engineering and arts and the humanities
This session will help you to:
- Enhance your knowledge and understanding of public and community engagement
- Navigate the varying pathways to meaningfully engage with the public on a limited budget
- Identify ways to ensure ethics are considered to generate funding
