Public engagement stands for social and public involvement. It describes the many ways in which the activities and benefits of higher education and research can be shared with a wide audience.
Engagement is by definition a ‘two-way street’, so it goes both ways. Anyone involved in education, research or other academic activities should be able to collaborate with public partners. These partners can vary from citizens, to communities, to (non-)governmental organizations. By interacting with and listening to the audience, this can be beneficial for both parties. Think of it as a meaningful dialogue between the public and science.
