Pillar 4: Public Engagement

One of the goals of Open Science is to encourage researchers to engage with the public and to increase the societal impact of their research. Public engagement specialists from Studium Generale, the UG Science Shops, the UB, and the UMCG will initiate a public engagement community and develop new training sessions for researchers and the public (e.g. on citizen science) to stimulate academia to become more open, inclusive, and participatory in its knowledge creation.


  • Update and publish a UG vision on public engagement
  • Set up a public engagement community for information exchange between UG/UMCG initiatives
  • Develop University-wide training for secretaries
  • Set up a network, and pilot 20 academic training sessions, to support and professionalize staff in their public engagement activities (e.g. citizen science)
  • Plan and pilot a call for seed funding
