This workshop is for all academic staff and any professional services staff interested in the area of knowledge exchange, a process which brings together academic staff and users of research to exchange ideas, evidence and expertise through activities such as consultancy, training for professional development, contract and collaborative research. We will explain the current position at SOAS, where we want to be and how we are going to get there. This is an opportunity for staff to contribute their ideas to shape our activities in this area going forward.
The agenda will cover:
- What is knowledge exchange?
- Overview of the SOAS Knowledge Exchange strategy
- SOAS case studies
- Opportunities for developing KE at SOAS - do we have any big ideas where SOAS could become a leader in KE, generating revenue, prestige and impact?
- Higher Education Business Community Interaction survey (HE-BCIS) – SOAS performance and how this relates to the KE strategy
- Discussion and feedback
