Event details

This annual conference, organised by the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement, attracts a large and diverse audience drawn from HE and research organisations, research funders and policy makers, and community and third sector organisations.

Engage 2013 will explore:

  • What demand is there from non-HE organisations to engage with universities, and what are their needs and expectations?
  • To what extent are universities ready to rethink their models of engagement, in order to stimulate social innovation and develop partnerships that count?
  • As boundaries become increasingly blurred between businesses, social enterprises and charities, what is the unique contribution that universities can make to social change?

The conference will look at the many ways universities and their partners choose to engage together, and the agendas these partnerships serve. It will provide an opportunity for open dialogue between the HE community, policy makers and funders, and the organisations working with them.
