Join TheWheel.ie to explore how the community and voluntary sector can benefit from engaged research and to learn about the supports available to your organisation.
Also referred to as citizen science or participatory action research, “engaged research” can be summed up as research that is advanced with community partners rather than for them. Engaged research projects therefore provide an excellent opportunity for civil society groups to influence and shape research in their field, access data to inform their work, and participate in a wide range of funding programmes.
Featuring a panel of representatives from both the nonprofit sector and academia, this session will provide insight on engaged research from the Irish and international contexts and will cover:
- What is engaged research?
- Opportunities for civil society organisations and how to get involved
- Best practice case studies
- Supports available
- Info on follow up in-person networking days.
Guest speakers and panellists including:
- Dr John Bartlett from ATU Sligo
- Aoife Deane from MaREI, SFI Research Centre for Energy, Climate and Marine
- Kate Morris from Campus Engage
- Dr Avril Kennan from Health Research Charities Ireland
- Dr Chiara Loda from Irish Marie Skłodowska-Curie Office
- Sarah Bowman from the Office of the Dean of Research Trinity College Dublin Global
