Conference: Synergies in Research with and for Communities

The 9th Living Knowledge Conference, is planned on Wednesday 29, Thursday 30 June and Friday 1 July 2022 in Groningen. A pre-conference is sceduled on Wednesday 28 June.

The 9th Living Knowledge Conference 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? On the network’s 22nd anniversary we will celebrate our achievements and look forward into the future! 

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, the organizers hoped 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, community service learning, user driven innovation etc. They are especially interested in collaborations you have forged, how you created synergies by involving students, crossovers you have made, and your ideas for future collaborations.
