Public engagement involves dialogue, interaction and participation, between researchers and non-academics. It is as much about listening as it is about offering insights and knowledge. It creates benefits for the public (increased understanding, chance to be part of science), the researchers (new ideas, challenge thinking), the university (raises its profile) and for society as a whole (making more informed choices, challenge rooted convictions).
