Public Engagement is defined as “the set of institutionally organised activities with educational, cultural and societal development value and addressed to a non-academic public”. Public engagement initiatives represent “context and boundary” in which research and society meet and interact through a two-way exchange that enriches both. It is the encounter with society and its needs that stimulates new curiosities, opens up new interests and research hypotheses, improves the quality of the way knowledge dialogues with the social and entrepreneurial community, and also opens up economic spin-offs.
