Postponed – Why work together?: Lessons from academic and third sector collaborations

Section: Membership Location: Glasgow City Date of event: 08/09/2020 at 10:00 - 13:00

Please note this event has been postponed and will now take place on 8 September 2020. All other details remain the same.

This will be the first of three collaborative learning events in the Policy Scotland (this link will take you away from our website) and Scottish Third Sector Research Forum (this link will take you away from our website) series “Learning Together: The possibilities and practicalities of academic and third sector collaboration”.

In this first event,

  • three early career researchers will share their experience undertaking collaborative research with third sector organisations in a variety of ways. They will share some key considerations for undertaking this type of research, their challenges, successes and lessons learned.
  • useful information will be shared for third sector attendees about some existing programmes to begin or strengthen your engagement with academic partners.
  • attendees can expect to walk away with a better understanding of the processes, considerations, and benefits of collaborative research between third sector organisations and academic partners.

Who is this event for?
This event has been crafted with both academics and members of the third sector in mind.

  • Specifically, they hope to reach academics who work to connect students with third sector organisations for their projects, postgraduate academic advisors, postgraduate students and other academics who have an interest in working with third sector partners.
  • This event will be of interest to third sector organisations looking to develop research projects with an academic partner, or for those who want to know more about how research can positively impact their work.

Following the presentations, there will be ample time for discussion as well as networking opportunities.

This event is funded by Policy Scotland and is free to attend. Lunch will be provided.
