Join us for a two-day Festival of Engaged Scholarship at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). Our Festival is an exciting opportunity to hear from experienced Engaged Scholars and join the community of practice that the Engaged Scholarship Learning Lab is developing with the British Academy of Management (BAM) and the Institute for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (ISBE).
Engaged Scholarship is the process of identifying research problems and addressing them with stakeholders (Van de Ven, 2007; 2011). Come along to our Festival to hear how impactful ESRC-funded researchers caught stakeholder attention, co-designed projects, mobilised evidence or co-created innovation. And, how they have developed engaged research centres or created impact over time.
Join us in-person in Manchester for two days of plenaries, workshops and a Festival Dinner. As we are building a community of practice, we want to sustain joint learning. So, please sign up to our whole two-day event. The main event ends after lunch at 2pm on 21st July. If you are an Early Career Researcher, there is a special workshop for you in the afternoon ending at 4pm. Please note that we are encouraging in-person networking and so virtual attendance is not possible.
The ESRC is funding the conference itself but delegates need to organise and fund their own transport and accommodation.
Conference Venue: Brooks Building, Manchester Metropolitan University, 53 Bonsall St, Hulme, Manchester M15 6GX
