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. 

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