Engaging the public with our research
Here at the University of Surrey, we are committed to engaging a range of stakeholders with our research.
The National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement defines public engagement as "The myriad of ways in which the activity and benefits of higher education and research can be shared with the public. Engagement is by definition a two-way process, involving interaction and listening, with the goal of mutual benefit."
Who we engage with
