·              Extend the reach and impact of a project, with a fresh and dynamic approach to public engagement. In this context, pubic engagement may refer to participants and/or audiences

·              Establishes and evidences effect project partnerships, which may include high profile international dimensions and collaborators in terms of public visibility and resource-based partnerships
