How to add a public engagement activity
This guide explains how to add a public engagement (PE) activity to the University publications system.
Why should I add these activities to the system?
PE activities are promotion relevant
(; the system can act as your
storage place.
Submitted activities along with outputs automatically feed through to the REF-supporting system
IRIS, helping you to build REF case studies.
The University has to report to HESA for its Business and Community Interactions survey and that
includes PE activities; this new process makes the figures more reliable, diminishing under-reporting.
Create a new record
1. Log in to the University publications system using your IT login.
2. Scroll down to Professional activities and click on the +add button.
3. Select the Public Engagement Activity field
4. Fill in the fields (fields marked by an asterisks are required)
