Future identities in public engagement – where might we be in 5 years?

Join us for a lively discussion about the role public engagement with research can play over the next few years with particular emphasis on finding common ground, shared interests and values across different countries, cultures, and identities. We will allow plenty of opportunities for audience input and interaction after hearing some opening challenges from our panel of distinguished engagement professionals from across Europe and beyond.
