Public engagement 

Birkbeck is a place where we connect, collaborate, challenge received wisdom, and build on the expertise of life experience as well as official knowledge. We work with our researchers to provide them with opportunities and guidance for engaged research to build research excellence, foster community and broker knowledge exchange. 

'We believe public engagement is an essential part of a strong research culture that supports interdisciplinary study and acknowledges the importance of non-academic expertise.' Professor David Latchman, Master of Birkbeck.
