The Engaged Research pillar focuses on engaging with stakeholders and policy makers through Lero research. The focus on Responsible Software Engineering enables engagement which aims “to improve understanding and investigate an issue of public interest or concern, advanced with community partners rather than for them” (Campus Engaged Research Programme). This area incorporates research initiatives such as Public and Patient Involvement in Research (PPI)Citizen Science and Responsible Research and Innovation. The citizen is at the core of these programmes with societal benefit of the research being the desired outcome.
