EU Living Knowledge Online Festival 28 June – 2 July

We are pleased to inform you that the registration for the Living Knowledge Online Festival, from 28 June – 2 July 2021, is open and you can now sign up for workshops and other ‘live’ sessions (some of which have a limited capacity). To be as inclusive as possible, participation is free for everyone!


An overview of all the pre-recorded video presentations will be made available later.



We will celebrate together the 21st anniversary of the Living Knowledge Network and the successful ending of the InSpires project. We hope to see you all!

The Online Festival aims to bring together all those 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 which could we still make? Presenters will share their efforts to co-create and share new knowledge for an inclusive, equitable, healthy and sustainable society.

The Online Festival offers you:

  • Pre-recorded video presentations, which you can watch at your convenience in any time zone. The ‘comment’ option can be used for questions or discussions.
    • Workshops and live panel sessions
    • Discussion sessions on the different thematic strands in the conference
    • A social space in Gather.Town, where you can meet with presenters and other participants, have your own Open Space meeting, or go for a chat or a virtual drink with old and new friends

The Festival is organized by the Science Shops at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, in collaboration with international partners of the Living Knowledge Network, especially the InSpires consortium.
