About us

Our team provides a bridge between the University’s research community and people living and working in communities outside. We help our researchers start and sustain conversations that can help:

  1. Improve the quality of research
  2. Increase the relevance of research within society
  3. Fulfil our university’s responsibilities to society

At the University of Bristol, public engagement is highly valued as a driver for responsible research and impact. We were one of the first universities to set up a public engagement team and, in partnership with the University of the West of England, were instrumental in the creation of the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE).

Engaging with the public about our research is an integral and exciting part of academic life at Bristol. It ensures our work has impact and relevance beyond the University's walls and that society's values and opinions inform our research. Conversations between researchers and communities can lead to stronger research, better lives and lasting relationships. 

We work across the University, offering public engagement advice, training and development opportunities. If you're interested in learning more about public engagement and how our team can help, get in touch.
