Beltane Public Engagement Network

Beltane Breakfasts and Twilights 2017/18

Beltane Breakfasts and Twilights are informal events where members of the Beltane community share their experiences of aspects of public engagement around a theme. University researchers and support staff, along with people from organisations that wish to work with universities, have a chance to share information and ideas over bacon rolls, coffee and cake.

Staff and students from universities in Edinburgh are also very welcome to attend the Engaging Sessions run by Beltane Network member Heriot-Watt Engage.
