PER Facilitator Network

The University of Oxford’s PCER team co-facilitates the Public Engagement Facilitator Network (PEFN). PEFN is a University-wide network, which creates opportunities for networking, shared learning and best practice in all things Public Engagement with Research. Launched in February 2021, the network involves informal meetings once or twice a term, with the opportunity for responsive and flexible interaction through a dedicated MS Team with subject specific channels. The aim of the network is to provide peer support and create a community comprised of professional services staff at the University of Oxford who actively support, facilitate and/ or lead Public and Community Engagement with Research as part of their role. It is designed for and by the PEF community, and its direction is led by its members, their interests and goals.

Email [email protected] if you are a professional services staff member fitting this description at Oxford and wish to be added to the network.
