Posted by Living Knowledge 7 conference on 21 Feb 2016
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 the 7th International Living Knowledge Conference to 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 will also be pre-conference activities on the afternoon of 21 June, and a public event on the evening of 23 June). As with all Living Knowledge Conferences, positive interactions will provide excellent opportunities for networking. There will be a focus on community-based research, responsible research and innovation, and other knowledge exchange and creation collaborations between local communities, civil society organisations, researchers and educators.
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 support the solving of real-world problems collaboratively, and to build responsible research and innovation (RRI) into the curriculum. This will 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 RRI into learning and teaching structures in Higher Education.
