So this week we held our first informal, drop-in discussion forum around public and community engagement, which was so well attended we ran out of seats- fantastic. Great to see that UCLan is engaged with the idea of engagement 🙂
Fuelled by coffee, rocky road cake and mini gingerbread men, the forum generated some super new ideas and interesting and provocative feedback on EngageUCLan’s plans for implementing the Concordat for Engaging the Public with Research. We even managed to match make some ideas with skills on the ‘lonely hearts board’. Move over Cilla (now I’m showing my age).
