The 2020 PEARL Conference was held digitally via Zoom where we were joined by more than 85 Lincoln staff, students and guests who logged on to hear about the exciting and inspiring range of public engagement projects and opportunities at Lincoln.
We welcomed a lot of new faces to this year’s conference, with 2020 being the first PEARL conference for 74% of attendees. We formally announced the 12 recipients of the PEARL Activity Grants Fund for 2020/21, and guests were given brilliant, snapshot insights into some fantastic engagement projects carried out over the last year in Lincoln.
Attendees also had the chance to meet one another through virtual breakout groups, and to share their thoughts and ideas on the future of public engagement with research at Lincoln. Overall, 86% of attendees felt they learnt something new about public engagement from attending the conference.
We’d like to extend a big thank you to all our speakers for their invaluable time and insights, and to all attendees for joining us on the day. If you missed out on this year’s event, you can watch all short talks from our Activity Spotlight speakers, below.
