The University of Leicester has signed NCCPE manifesto, therefore we use their definition of PE:

"Public engagement describes the myriad of ways in which the activity and benefits of higher education and research can be shared with the public. Engagement is by definition a two-way process, involving interaction and listening, with the goal of generating mutual benefit."

Public Engagement Umbrella

There are many different types of engagement, including community engagement and public engagement with research, that all come under the umbrella term of public engagement.

For more information on what engagement is, why it is important, and what we mean by “public”, please visit the NCCPE web pages.
