Call for Proposals for the 9th Living Knowledge Conference, 24-26 June 2020, University of Groningen, Netherlands.
The 9th international Living Knowledge Conference aims to bring together all involved in doing or supporting research with and for communities. What can we learn from each other’s approaches? How can we collaborate? Which links have been forged and what connections can still be made?
Over the years, a myriad of approaches have been developed in collaborative research with and for communities. Different names, different (ideological) histories, and (sometimes slightly) different objectives may obscure what we all have in common: an urge to co-create and share new knowledge for an inclusive, equitable, healthy and sustainable society.
The conference invites you to talk about your science shops, research shops, living labs, citizen science, public engagement, participatory action research, investigative journalism, community-based research, community service learning, user driven innovation and any similar activities you are undertaking. Of particular interest is the collaborations you have forged, how you created synergies by involving students, crossovers you have made, and your ideas for future collaborations.
Living Knowledge Conferences favour interaction over one-way presentations, with lots of time dedicated to discussions, workshops, and dilemma sessions.
