The DCU Centre for Engaged Research is being launched on

The Centre for Engaged Research is a new University Designated Research Centre at DCU committed to the embedding of the principles and practices of engaged research at the university and across the island of Ireland with our active partners and networks. 

Join DCU for the virtual launch of the DCU Centre for Engaged Research, taking place on Monday, 13th December at 2pm.

The launch will be followed by a panel discussion on “Engaged Research: Harnessing knowledge for community empowerment” with special guest speakers:

  • Paul Manners, Director, National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement, UK
  • Professor Kathryn Higgins, Director of Queen’s Communities and Place Initiative, Queen’s University Belfast
  • Deirdre Garvey, Chief Executive Officer, The Wheel, Ireland

The launch will be closed by Professor Michelle Butler, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Science and Health.

The  Centre for Engaged Research will pursue a new agenda that is coming to the fore in Ireland and in Europe. It is part of a wider movement to turn research into an active partnership with society to address pressing public needs.

Engaged Research is not only a more inspiring ideal for academia, it is also a more promising basis for a just and sustainable society.
