This area brings together reflections on engagement from across key collaborative research programmes, consortia or large networks. The resources here have been curated into 'Programme Hubs' which hightlight engagement work happening across multiple projects, locations and research areas. These Hubs aim to gather learning, encourage collaboration and showcase the diversity of engagement within each programme. 

If you are part of a large research programme or network and would like to give visability to the variety of engagement work it includes please get in touch
