Developing community-university research partnerships: 3rd Speed Dating event
A free event, open to community organisations/groups, staff and postgraduates. An opportunity to explore research opportunities using the speed dating format. The aim of the speed dating event is for representatives from community groups and organizations to meet academic staff and postgraduate researchers from across the University to find out more about each other and explore possibilities for collaborative research on any topic.
Members of University support departments will be on hand to give advice about funding possibilities and other possibilities for Community-University engagement Format: The room is laid out with tables around which people circulate at regular intervals in order to get to know new people. Everyone is allowed five minutes at each ‘stop’, after which you are expected to move on or continue further discussions about potential research links around a side table loaded with scones, tea and coffee (to fuel the interactions). Come one, come all! No need to register – just show up and get dating!! The event will start with the launch of the new guide produced by CSJCA and published in collaboration with the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement Community-Based Participatory Research: A Guide to Ethical Principles and Practice Several of the community partners and academics involved in compiling the guide will speak about their experiences in community-university partnership working and some of the ethical issues that arise.
