RCUK promotes long-term value of public engagement

Research Councils UK has published a strategic plan for engaging members of the public in research, including a promise to ensure that the value of engagement work by researchers is properly recognised.

RCUK says that its vision for public engagement is to generate dialogue and trust between researchers and society in order to inspire and inform the public, enhance the quality and impact of research, and contribute to the economy and the wellbeing of society. 

It says that it will deliver this vision by focusing its strategic work on stimulating researchers to engage with the public. It will open up RCUK policymaking and research strategies to public input, and will help to inform and involve the next generation of the public by sustaining the next generation of researchers.
