Engaged Research Action Plan

Engaged Research Action Plan Overview 


NCCPE Academies Funding

As part of the Queen’s University Engaged Research Action Plan, funding for three places per year at the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE) Engage Academy, and three places at the Engage Researchers Academy, including travel and accommodation costs, will be provided to successful applicants.

The NCCPE Engage Academy provides a space for professional development for those working to embed high quality engagement with research in their institution. Aimed at those working to enhance the quality, visibility and impact of public engagement with research, the Engage Academy supports participants to develop a strategic approach to engagement with research for their department, research organisation or university.

The Engage Researchers' Academy is a yearlong professional development programme for researchers with a passion for public engagement. The programme creates a challenging but supportive environment for delegates to reflect upon what it means to be an engaged researcher, and to explore the quality and value of engagement. It also supports participants to develop the skills and experience to work with others and improve the impact and relevance of their research.

Applicants to this internal funding stream are invited to fill out the short form below.  If successful, Queens Research and Enterprise Directorate will cover the costs associated with your application to NCCPE.  Please note – it is the individual applicant’s responsibility to make the application to NCCPE.

Closing date for applications to this fund is Wednesday 13th February 2019. Successful applicants will be informed during the week beginning Monday 18th February.
