Public Engagement through Research

Public Engagement

Sharing the benefits of research with our society

Public Engagement through Research

Kent is committed to engaging with all sectors of our region and we aim to maximise the positive impact our research can have on society and, in particular, our local communities. By engaging together, we can contribute positively to our local communities and accomplish things that will be mutually beneficial to all of us.

Public engagement is about collaboration, dialogue, innovation, and teamwork. Whether you are a senior academic, an early stage researcher or a public engagement professional, you are encouraged to think creatively about the world around you and how academic research can be applied to make it better.

It’s really interesting to realise how cosmopolitan the University is and to find out exactly what’s going on. It’s been fascinating.
