Exeter to become catalyst for engaging research

The University of Exeter has been awarded £300,000 to become a centre of excellence for public engagement in research. The grant from Research Councils UK (RCUK) will ensure Exeter’s research addresses the most pressing issues facing people today: from patients to business leaders.

By becoming one of eight University Catalysts for Public Engagement, Exeter will build on a series of excellent initiatives already underway and ensurepublic engagement becomes an embedded part of its research culture.

The grant will support a three-year programme to establish new structures and processes across the University and develop the ‘Exeter Catalyst’.

University of Exeter Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Nick Talbot said: “The Exeter Catalyst will enable us to become a leading UK institution for public engagement. We are committed to carrying out world-class research that addresses some of the most important issues facing people today: from understanding the impacts of climate change to researching new treatments for diabetes and improving literacy in schools. This new funding will enable us to strengthen our links with a whole range of people, from patients to local business leaders, to ensure our research continues to benefit them.”
