Public engagement

Public engagement means extending research activities beyond the academic world through a conscientious and purposeful commitment to society.

As reflected by our culture, we value engaging with the community and contributing with competencies through inclusive actions and sustainable practices.

Among the Department's strategic objectives is to further enhance our engagement towards stakeholders that reflects our values and our ability to impact society through connections with practice.

Here are the actions undertaken by our department to achieve this goal:

  • Promote a culture of public engagement and expand formats and events to enhance dSEA’s reputation with external stakeholders.
  • Promote initiatives for research dissemination through opening channels of communication to a broader public, including support to laboratories.
  • Increase fundraising prospects by including professors in the development of long-term connections with organizations and businesses.
  • Advancement of management and economic concepts through a strategy of lifelong learning and advanced training in practice-oriented certifications.
  • Strengthen the relationship with Alumni (Chapter Economia) towards continuous collaboration for public engagement and project-oriented activities.
