Why we've signed the Manifesto
“Loughborough University is one of the UK’s leading research universities, with 18% of our research considered to be world-leading by the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. Already, the University has an outstanding reputation for conducting research which is beneficial to both the public and private sectors, and we have a significant amount of partnerships and collaborations with the government, businesses and in industry. In all areas of our work, we recognise the responsibility Higher Education Institutions have to improve their communities and contribute to society. Loughborough also recognises the vital role the public can play in inspiring and informing research undertaken at the university. We believe that engaging partners throughout the research process is key to our success.
By signing this manifesto, the researchers, staff and students here recognise the importance of making their research accessible and relevant, and commit to strengthening and expanding the agenda of public engagement at Loughborough University.”
