Public engagement with research

Two women looking at a research posterThe University of Hertfordshire is a signatory to the Manifesto for Public Engagement:

  • We believe that universities and research institutes have a major responsibility to contribute to society through their public engagement, and that they have much to gain in return.
  • We are committed to sharing our knowledge, resources and skills with the public, and to listening to and learning from the expertise and insight of the different communities with which we engage.
  • We are committed to developing our approach to managing, supporting and delivering public engagement for the benefit of staff, students and the public, and to sharing what we learn about effective practice.

Our public engagement with research falls into three broad categories:

Informing the public, inspiring and involving the community with our research
