In order to increase the chances of your research having the impact you are hoping for, you should take some time now to think about how you can engage external partners, participants, collaborators or co-producers in your project.
- Think as broadly as possible about who you should be talking to, take a look at the guidance here. Plan activities targeted at these people or groups. Ask yourself: Why do I want to reach them? Why should they be interested? You should define your objectives, identify your research users and build in evaluation measures for your activities.
- If you haven't received funding for engagement activities, look at these funding opportunities for KEI within LSE.
- Get in touch with the KEI Integrated Service, we are here to help.
