HUM Symposium: Are You Engaged? First video online now!

On the 16th of March, the UU Faculty of Humanities held a symposium on public engagement. We addressed questions about the benefits of public engagement, stakeholder relationship management and partner involvement, and also tried to define what public engagement exactly means. Besides interviews with great speakers and guests, there was plenty of room for input from the audience as well.

The event was organized by: Lauren Gould and Saskia Stevens (public engagement fellows), Marijn Struiksma (faculty open science ambassador), Femke Niehof (science communication advisor), Stephanie Helfferich, Erwin Maas (public engagement team UU), Martine Paulissen (coordination). You can find the program and a full list of speakers and their subjects below. Are you curious about the discussions we had? Join us in the first episode of ‘Are You Engaged’!

In this first segment, conflict scientist Lauren Gould and communication scientist Lisanne van Weelden discuss partner/stakeholder engagement at the ‘Are You Engaged?’ symposium of the Utrecht University faculty of Humanities at the 16th of March 2022. Who do we want as a partner and why, what is our goal? Where do we find our partners?
