Pre-Conference Programme – Science Shop Summer School  

Tuesday, 25 June 2024

The day before the conference we offer a separate pre-conference workshop – the Science Shop Summer School. It has become a tradition that the Living Knowledge Conference offers this ‘crash course’ with an overview of different ways to facilitate research with and for society though Science Shops or similar units. It is aimed at those who are relatively new to this – or those that just want to broaden their overview. It will help you make the most out of the main conference the following 2,5 days. 

In the afternoon there will be a workshop held by Joanna Ochocka called “Authentic or tokenistic Community-University Research Partnerships? Enhancing academic and community capacity for impactful community-based research”.

There will be an optional complimentary city visit on this Tuesday in the afternoon as well.

*Registration is required for all activities.


Conference Plenary Sessions

Curriculum engagement in times of crisis: who are we engaging and for what purpose?

In a time of uncertainty, where we seem to lurch from crisis to crisis, how can we ensure Higher Education curricula anticipates and responds to changing cultural, societal, economic, and environmental needs? How might we intentionally design and enact teaching so that students experience and demonstrate learning that equips them for an unknown future. If the curriculum is indeed a “pedagogical vehicle for effecting change in human beings” (Barnett, 2009), then who are we engaging and for what purpose? This plenary session considers these questions drawing on the perspective of faculty, students and communities, stakeholders while also arguing that the curriculum is a vital place to begin answering these questions.

  • Réka Matolay – Corvinus University of Budapest (Chair)
  • Valentina Tassone – Wageningen University
  • Catherine O’Mahoney – University College Cork
  • Karel Proot Former student at Ghent University and project officer at Breekijzer

Engagement disrupts! Requirements of future policies to overcome the conceptual, legal, financial and institutional fragility of community engagement

The complexity of our research as well as our education systems demand a holistic and coordinated approach across different geographies and scales, socio-cultural contexts and practices. These systems are complex and need innovative socio-technical solutions that transcend disciplinary and institutional boundaries. They require a shift in the culture of and partnerships for science based on sound, reliable and innovative policies.. But do we already send a clear and unified message and do we talk with one voice to policy makers? Do we have a coherent, strong and convincing narrative that could be considered as the answer to problems which multiple audiences would see as legitimate? And how can ‘collaboration competency’ and active learning be promoted as a proactive and self-directed approach to research and education and related policies? Rosa Arias, Nùria Bayo and Ismael Rafols invite you to discuss these topics.

  • Norbert Steinhaus – WilaBonn Science Shop (Chair)
  • Rosa Arias – Science for Change
  • Ismael Ràfols – Leiden University 
  • Núria Bayó Regions del Coneixement

Building and sustaining next generation engagement: Visioning our future

This interactive plenary will offer you a breathing space and a chance to consolidate your learning and consider what you are taking away from the conference. You’ll have time to think on your own, and to share with and hear from others. What will change for you? What do you want others to change? How will you (and we as a network) play a part in building and sustaining next generation engagement?

Side Events

The digital transformation in the heritage domain opens the door to a collaboration between archives and the scientific community. On the one hand, there is the need to have new technology for the documentary treatment of big amounts of photographs and audiovisuals and also for their preservation. On the other hand, there are plenty of opportunities for new storytelling and for the collaboration between archives and citizens. In this session, we will explain the link between Archives, Technology and People, based on our own experience in different international projects and with the aim to make it clear the interest of archives in the scientific and social spheres. Besides, it must be highlight that this session will take place at the Municipal Archive’s facilities, a Convent form the XVIIth century I the historic quartier of Girona city.
