Thank you visiting our PEARL temporary website. This website will keep you up to date with all the latest PEARL news, whilst we work behind the scenes on our new site.

Public engagement shares the benefits of transformative research with wider society. Engagement is by definition a two-way process, involving interaction and listening, participation and learning.

Public Engagement for All with Research at Lincoln (PEARL), is a new RCUK-funded project investigating how the university can improve its public engagement with research, and putting new strategies in place to do so. This project will be looking to find out more about what you think of public engagement with research, and what you’d like to see more of. In response to this there will be exciting new opportunities, a conference, grants, awards training, support, opportunities to join up with other researchers – explore this website for more about the project and the opportunities available.



PEARL grants for public engagement with research have now been announced and awarded – update to follow.

Untitled design (5)PEARL Survey – What do members of the public think of opportunities available getting involved with research?

PEARL is running a survey asking about what members of the public think of the opportunities available for people beyond the university to get involved in its research. The University wants to know what you think, and what you’d like to see more of. Find out more & take part.

If you have colleagues, friends or family who may be interested in taking this survey and letting us know their thoughts, please share it far and wide, as the feedback really will help shape how public engagement with research happens at Lincoln, and beyond.
