Public Engagement Champions
Eight students from the Centre of Excellence (CoE) and the Centre for Public Health (CPH) have completed the first year of a pilot public engagement project delivered by CoE/CPH in partnership with QUB Research and Enterprise Directorate. The project aims to provide an introduction to public engagement and encourage researchers to involve members of the public at all stages of the research cycle from co-design through to dissemination. To date students have completed sessions on stakeholder mapping, public and personal involvement and participated in public engagement training. Recently the students presented their work and discussed with individuals with experience in the area of cancer, nutrition, cardiovascular disease, macular degeneration, community based physical activity and urban renewal.
