We think it takes a bit of a leap of faith into the unknown to work in partnership with a student and researchers at UCL. Looking at the Voluntary and Higher Education sectors, there are very different ways of working to be seen, very different skills involved, and often interest in very different products at the end! At the Community Research Initiative, we think partnership working, and the knowledge and skills exchange that can occur along the way, needs celebrated. Loudly!
Therefore, at the end of every academic year, at the cusp of a new one starting, we host a Showcase event. Students and Community Partners who have worked together on a project in one way or another, all with the intention to share knowledge and produce something useful and useable beyond academia, share their experiences, insights, and advice!
These events are a great way to get a snapshot of the Community Research Initiative if you are thinking about taking part yourself!
The Showcase 2022 will be held at the Friends House on Euston Road on Thursday 29 September @ 14.00-16.00. Celebration refreshments and networking to follow until 17.00.
Please note, there are online options available also, as this will be a live streamed event on Zoom.
