We invite you to synergize2014, a 1½ day conference on 22 & 23 Sep 2014.
The nature of research is changing. There is greater pressure for research to have impact on society and the economy. A number of key projects at Lancaster University have been leading the way on how to achieve research with impact, through collaborative research where academics partner with business, community groups and the wider public.
Synergize2014 will bring together innovators from across the academic spectrum and from a variety of business and community backgrounds to demystify collaborative research. For us the conference celebrates the culmination of Catalyst and its work.
We are presenting seven fantastic keynote speakers including: Charles Leadbeater, journalist and writer of new book ‘The Frugal Innovator’, and Chris Csíkszentmihályi, cofounder of the MIT Center, US, dedicated to strengthening communities with technology.
We welcome academics, business and enterprises (large or small), public sector and community organisations, students (PHD and undergraduates) and those interested in developing university partnerships. Concessions and bursary places available, please get in touch for info from email@example.com
