    Current policy and funding frameworks as well as public attitudes are creating an environment in which researchers are expected to demonstrate wider societal impact of their research and to actively engage 'the public' with their research. But who are 'the public'? Who should we be engaging with, why and in what ways? What do we mean by public engagement and how is it relevant to our research? And if we do it, how do we know if we've done it well? How do we evaluate public engagement and its impact?
