Making a research-practice partnership work: approaches from Amsterdam and Sheffield
January 31, 2014 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm
We are delighted to invite you to the above afternoon event that is being hosted by the Research Exchange for the Social Sciences (RESS). We will be welcoming Martien Kuitenbrouwer (District Mayor, West Amsterdam) and Dr David Laws (Department of Political Science, University of Amsterdam) who will present their story of eight years working together in the City of Amsterdam. They will explore what has been successful in their own partnerships and provide a picture of the commitments, goals, and forms of interaction that are needed to make a researcher/practitioner partnership work.
We will then be showcasing presentations from two University of Sheffield projects: Furnace Park Sandpit Project – Dr Amanda Crawley Jackson and; Engaging urban ethnic minority communities in heritage and environmental issues – Dr Esme Cleall and Dr Chamundeeswari Kuppuswamy. The academics will be joined by their partners and collaborators to present. We will end the day with a broad discussion around ways of interactive, collaborative and co-produced working.
Places are limited so please sign up as soon as possible for the event through Eventbrite – https://amsterdam-sheffield.
