  • Beacons for public engagement
  • Date:  01 January 2006
  • HEFCW is supporting a new £8 million initiative that aims to promote excellence in public engagement and effect a culture change in UK universities towards engaging with the public. HEFCW, together with the other UK higher education funding councils, Research Councils UK (RCUK) and the Wellcome Trust, is supporting a new £8 million initiative that aims to promote excellence in public engagement and effect a culture change in UK universities towards engaging with the public. The funders have launched the initiative in order to co-ordinate efforts to recognise, reward and build capacity in public engagement across all subject areas. Public engagement encompasses all university and research institute activities that establish and maintain a dialogue with the wider public. The funding will also be used to establish a UK-wide co-ordinating centre to work across the initiative and promote best practice. The invitation to bid can be accessed via www.hefce.ac.uk/pubs/hefce/2006/06_49/ (initial applications should be submitted to HEFCE by 14 February 2007. HEFCW will provide funding support provided that Welsh HEIs are involved either as leads or partners in successful bids).
