Engagement Bites: PERFORM: How reflecting on responsibility can help you shape effective public engagement

PERFORM, a Horizon 2020 project from 2015-2018, brought early career researchers together with performers, teachers and secondary school students across Europe. Together, they developed performance-based activities that explored Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and the human dimension of science. PERFORM developed training and resources to help researchers build a holistic and interdisciplinary perspective on their research. Researchers explored some key questions, such as:

  • How is my research embedded in the social practices, norms and values of the scientific community?
  • What are my responsibilities towards society?
  • How does my reflexivity on these issues translate in the way I engage people in my research?

Join us to hear more about this project and have a go at using the PERFORM toolkit resources to support you to build reflexivity into your practice and develop more effective public engagement. This talk is part of a series of informal lunch-time talks with the aim of sharing some of the public engagement taking place within the University. Feel free to bring your lunch!
