Campus Engage and IRC Engaged Research National Consultations coming to a location near you! 

During September and October 2016 the Campus Engage Engaged Research Working Group will be consulting as widely as possible with stakeholders, including academic staff, CSOs, funding agencies, policy officials and others, to gather information on engaged research challenges and enablers, case studies, impact, methods & techniques, and how to establish effective civic and civil society partnerships.

Information gathered will inform a Campus Engage - Irish Research Council National report guidelines, an associated framework for engaged research techniques, and set of recommendations for policy makers, national and EU funders.

We would like to now invite you to be a part of this project and to assist us in building shared understanding and capacity.

Our objective is to make Ireland the best country in the EU to work with on addressing ‘grand social challenges’; and to reach institutional and national EU Horizon 2020 targets.

“Engaged Research is the global term for a variety of research approaches and methodologies across disciplines that share a common interest in collaborative engagement methods, with the goal or outcome of improving, understanding or investigating an issue of public interest or concern. Engagement may be in terms of research design, acquiring and analysing data, capacity building and sharing findings”. Campus Engage, 2016
