ADAPT’s Public Engagement strand aims to engage the Irish public with experiences that incorporate discussion, dialogue and deliberation around the societal implications of future digital engagement.

ADAPT has developed a Public Engagement Framework that has at its core the provision of opportunities for the Irish public to learn about engaging in our digital world and to reflect and have a voice on the future of this vital area of research.

The Framework outlines three principles that guide the kinds of activities undertaken by participants in ADAPT EPE initiatives. These are:

  • Learn: Understanding the basic scientific concepts behind digital engagement
  • Engage: Exploring and interacting with technologies that enable engagement in our digital world
  • Participate: Contribute to the future of engagement in our digital world
