Conference: Synergies in Research with and for Communities

We regret to inform you that we have had to decide to postpone our 9th International Living Knowledge Conference with one year. The rapid spread of the Corona virus and the resulting severe travel restrictions make it impossible to go ahead as planned.

The 9th Living Knowledge Conference, will be held 24-26 June 2020 in Groningen. The 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?

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 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, 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.
