Engagement with External Policy-Makers and End-Users

The three Eastern Arc universities are situated in regions that have historically been open to new ways of thinking and new ways of working, influencing and being influenced by them. We will continue and build on this tradition by engaging meaningfully with external stakeholders.

To do so, we will:

  • Raise the profile of Eastern Arc, its aspirations and achievements, lobby on its behalf, and pro-actively encourage a broader audience to engage with it.
  • Host regular guest lectures, seminars and workshops with key policy-makers, funders, and regional, national and international stakeholders.
  • Provide training for academics in effective engagement with the end-users of their research.
