Workshop Facilitators: Dr Marian Crowley-Henry, Dr Amy Fahy and Sadhbh Crean (SFI AMBER Centre); all Campus Engaged Facilitators
The School of Business, in collaboration with Campus Engage, would like to invite faculty members and PhD students to join us for an Introduction to Engaged Research workshop. This workshop may be useful to assist you with effectively responding to engagement and impact criteria across EU Horizon Europe and Irish funding agency calls, in addition to other multi-stakeholder projects that you are/would like to be involved in.
Engaged research describes a wide range of rigorous research approaches and methodologies that share a common interest in collaborative engagement with the community and aim to improve, understand, or investigate an issue of public interest or concern, including societal challenges. Engaged research is advanced with partners rather than for them.
At both national and international levels, the emergence of research programmes focused on public engagement and involvement, innovation missions, and industrial competitiveness are shaping more inclusive research landscape. It is within this changing and dynamic context that collaboration between researchers and a range of public research stakeholders – including civic and civil society organisations, state and semi-state agencies, industry partners, professionals, and members of the public – has begun to move from the margins to the mainstream of research design and execution.
Introduction to Engaged Research Workshop Agenda:
1. Explanation of what engaged research is, and introduction to the steps involved in the engaged research process.
2. Stakeholder identification and engagement.
3. Differentiating between outputs, outcomes and impact.
4. Drafting impact statements in line with DORA principles.
