Public Engagement

Public engagement at ENLIGHT

One of the main objective of our Alliance is to foster genuine engagement of civil society actors (e.g., citizens, civil society organizations, communities, municipalities) in ENLIGHT research and innovation activities from setting research agendas to executing the research, analyzing, and interpreting findings, discussing follow-up and creating impact, thus co-creating knowledge.

Public Engagement Activities

The members of our alliance organise a myriad of activities in public engagement.

Public Engagement Structures

PE structures and activities among our Alliance include specific organizational units that have a continuous responsibility for public engagement.

Past and Upcoming Public Engagement Webinars

All the webinars on public engagement will be published on YouTube. You can find them also on this page.
