The Manchester Beacon network is a legacy of the Manchester Beacon for Public engagement, a four year programme (2008 - 2012) aimed at supporting engagement across Greater Manchester through a partnership that involved The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, The University of Salford, The Museum of Science and Industry and Manchester Knowledge Capital.
You can also read the final independent evaluation of the Manchester Beacon which is summarised here and shares lessons learned and progress against objectives. All of the Beacon reports are available for download.
The National Coordinating Centre in Bristol continues to share learning around public engagement across the Higher Education Sector. In 2012, eight additional universities were awarded 'Catalyst' funding by Research Councils UK to build on the legacy of the Beacons initiative by embedding public engagement in research.
The Manchester Beacon was part of the Beacons for Public Engagement initiative and funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England and Research Councils UK, in association with the Wellcome Trust, the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales and the Scottish Funding Council.
