We help universities engage with the public

Call for Contributions

Our call for contributions to Engage 2017 is now open. This year we are doing things slightly differently. In the spirit of collaboration, we are inviting people to nominate themselves as workshop contributors or as poster hosts.

Workshop contributors

Do you have a great project that you would like to share with delegates? Are you hungry to open a conversation about collaboration around specific purposes? Are you keen to explore the ethics of collaboration, and how these can be negotiated? Are you wanting to consider how universities might collaborate in the future?

Whether you work in or with universities we are keen to hear from you.

This year we are convening workshops on our core conference themes, and are actively seeking contributors to these workshops.

We plan to have two or three contributions per session, and successful applicants will be invited to work together to develop a really engaging format for delegates. Therefore it will be great if you could indicate the theme you are responding to, and the nature of the conversation you hope to encourage.

We want to provide a space where delegates can

  • Be inspired by really effective practice
  • Enhance their learning
  • Develop new ideas and new approaches
  • Network with others

To this end we invite you to complete our form to express your interest in getting involved. We are particularly keen to see contributions involving both those who work in universities and those who work with universities, either as individuals or teams.

In addition, for those of you interested in sharing your work through the Research for All journal, we invite you to complete the relevant sections of the form to have your contribution considered for inclusion in the journal. You can find out more information about the journal here: www.publicengagement.ac.uk/researchforall

Poster hosts

Our poster party is a key way to network, and be inspired by some of the excellent work happening across the world. Poster hosts provide a poster about their work, and can also bring interactive elements should they so wish. There is a 2 hour session at Engage where, over drinks and nibbles, delegates can meet the poster hosts, and learn from their work.

To apply to bring a poster (and interactive elements) to Engage 2017 please complete our form.

Poster hosts are also invited to consider contributing to the Research for All journal - please complete the relevant section of the form if you would like to be considered.

Next steps

Please submit your application by 30th July 2017. We will be in contact by 15th August to confirm next steps. If you have any queries, please contact nccpe.enquiries@uwe.ac.uk. Bookings for the conference will open in September.
