The Concordat for Engaging the Public with Research was developed by the UK’s research funding bodies. The aim of the Concordat is to create a greater focus on and help embed Public Engagement with research across all disciplines in the higher education and research sectors.

QMU is committed to the four principles of the Concordat:

  • UK research organisations have a strategic commitment to Public Engagement.
  • Researchers are recognised and valued for their involvement with Public Engagement activities.
  • Researchers are enabled to participate in Public Engagement activities through appropriate training, support and opportunities.
  • The signatories and supporters will undertake regular reviews of their and the wider research sector’s progress in fostering Public Engagement across the UK.
