16-27 November, Online

511756-EVE-16x9-IFPAE-DigitallyEngagedOverview-NJT-SEP2020 

An in-person conference wasn't possible in 2020, but our conference went ahead in the form of a fortnight of virtual events. As usual, we offered a range of panel discussions, lectures and interactive sessions focusing on how to engage policy and public audiences with research. This year, we particuarly focused on the impact of the pandemic on engagement and impact, and on the increased role of digital and online tools in effective engagement work.

We invited external colleagues and experts in various fields including digital engagement, hyper-local engagement, citizen science, engaging with the Third Sector and EDI/Sustainability based research. With over 400 attendees and 16 external speakers it was a great success.
