Public engagement is described in the new National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE) manifesto as “The many ways in which higher education institutions and their staff and students can connect and share their work with the public”.

The manifesto and other recent documents talk unambiguously about the importance - and the challenges - of embedding public engagement activities, particularly in terms of developing researchers’ potential, improving and enhancing the quality of their research and encouraging their support of the wider aims of their institutions and the higher education sector as a whole.

This survey is designed to gather vital information on arts and humanities researchers’ understanding of and activities in the area of public engagement as a means of supporting and promoting national and institutional goals in public engagement and, through them, the aspirations of researchers themselves.

The survey will take around fifteen minutes of your time to complete.
