Are you interested in exchanging and developing knowledge and practices on how best to bring local communities, civil society organisations, students, researchers and educators together to collaboratively undertake responsible research and innovation? If so, come to Living Knowledge 7 and help us build excitement, partnerships and policy to support this.
Living Knowledge 2016 will be hosted by Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland, from 22-24 June (there may also be pre-conference activities on the afternoon of 21 June). As with all Living Knowledge Conferences, positive interactions will be fostered, providing excellent opportunities for networking. There will be a focus on science shops, community-based research, and other knowledge exchange and creation collaborations between local communities, civil society organisations, researchers and educators. We particularly welcome collaborative proposals, especially those developed with students, graduates, and community partners.
This conference is being funded by the European Commission as part of the EnRRICH project - Enhancing Responsible Research and Innovation through Curricula in Higher Education. EnRRICH aims to build policy, practice and partnerships to create a better awareness of the value of RRI in the curriculum, and to build the capacity of students across Europe to engage in collaborative, ethical open research with communities. As a result the main focus of this conference will be how to build collaborative research into learning and teaching structures in Higher Education.
The provisional timeline is as follows:
- July 2015: call for papers issued, with conference themes
