Location: Faculty of Arts, Universitat de Girona (Catalonia, Spain)

Conference theme: Building and sustaining next generation engagement

What are the new trends and approaches? How can we collaborate in the (near) future? Which links have been forged and what connections can still be made?  

The 10th Living Knowledge Conference aims to bring together all those involved in doing or supporting research with and for communities and especially those newer to the field

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, community service learning, user driven innovation and …. (put your work’s name tag here).


We are interested in collaborations you have forged, how you created new synergies by involving students, crossovers you have made, and your ideas for future collaborations. A special call out is for those new to the Living Knowledge Network and those newer to the field, we want to hear your voice, experience and knowledge.
