Engaged Practice Symposium at Birkbeck

Engaged Practice Symposium at Birkbeck

Monday 17th September 2018
10.30-17.00
Birkbeck, University of London

This event will bring together Birkbeck researchers with an active interest in participation, involvement and collaboration with communities and publics, within research and knowledge production.

To support this engaged practice, sessions will be focused on sharing experience, networking, and exploring opportunities for funding. Researchers from across the Schools will talk about their projects; discuss their methodologies, challenges, and successes. We will also consider the future support that would be beneficial throughout the engaged research process.

This event is open to all Birkbeck researchers with an interest in dialogue with non-academic groups, throughout the lifespan of their research. The programme will be announced in late-July.
