Over the years, a myriad of approaches have been developed to do 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.
Therefore, we hope to see you and talk about your science shops, research shops, living labs, citizen science, public engagement, participatory action research, investigative journalism, community-based research, user driven innovation and …. (put your work’s name tag here). The Living Knowledge team is especially interested in collaborations you have forged, crossovers you have made and your ideas for future collaborations.
Living Knowledge Conferences favour interaction over one-way presentations. You can expect ample time for discussions, workshops, and dilemma sessions. From this meeting of people and minds we hope to create synergies that will benefit all of us – and the communities we stand for.
The conference will be useful to anybody who’s either interested in, supporting, facilitating, or doing community-driven, collaborative research.
