Evaluation of the Enriching Engagement scheme Pilot 2 (2021 to 2022)
Enriching Engagement is a new pilot funding scheme which supports Wellcome-funded researchers at the University of Oxford to develop and deliver Public Engagement with Research projects. This pilot funding programme is part of Wellcome’s Institutional Research Engagement Fund (IREF) scheme to pilot a devolved approach to awarding Wellcome Public Engagement Enrichment grants.
We have been commissioned by the University of Oxford to work in partnership with the Enriching Engagement delivery team, to explore the outcomes and impacts of the scheme; and successes, challenges and lessons learned. Helix will work alongside the Oxford Enriching Engagement team to co-create a mixed methods approach, to gather a range of qualitative and quantitative data from multiple perspectives to address the evaluation questions and the objectives.
