Living Knowledge 2016 was hosted by Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland, from 22-24 June.

As with all Living Knowledge Conferences, positive interactions have been fostered, providing excellent opportunities for networking. There was a focus on science shops, community-based research, and other knowledge exchange and creation collaborations between local communities, civil society organisations, researchers and educators. We particularly welcomed collaborative proposals, especially those developed with students, graduates, and community partners.

This conference was funded by the European Commission as part of the EnRRICH project – Enhancing Responsible Research and Innovation through Curricula in Higher Education. EnRRICH aims to build policy, practice and partnerships to create a better awareness of the value of RRI in the curriculum, and to build the capacity of students across Europe to engage in collaborative, ethical open research with communities. As a result the main focus of this conference was how to build collaborative research into learning and teaching structures in Higher Education.
