The new DCU Centre for Engaged Research (CER) has announced an Autumn Lecture Series. Drawing from a wide diversity of fields and disciplines, the series showcases the variety and depth of engaged research on the island of Ireland and internationally. This series will discuss developments with regard to community engagement, citizen science, ethical issues and will help answer the question of ‘what is engaged research?’
On 15th September the first lecture in the series will feature Claire Mulrone (Ulster University) and Dr. Emma McKenna (Queen’s University) with a lecture on ‘Engaged Research in Northern Ireland: The Science Shop Model.’
Laura Grehan and Jane Suiter of ADAPT are on the steering committee of the new centre. The CER will engage in a variety of activities, such as knowledge sharing, capacity building, promoting community-university partnerships, addressing social needs, co-creating with communities, and exploring the role of new technologies in promoting public engagement in research.
