The event is now full and we are holding a waiting list.

About the conference

The conference aims to support cross-sector networking and knowledge exchange by

  •  exploring the impact of research collaboration between the third sector and universities
  • providing an opportunity for third sector, academic and other interested parties (such as public sector and funders) to engage together in learning  about collaborative research and its impact 

There will be:

  • Workshops and other activities led by third sector organisations and academic partners 
  • Cross-sector panel discussion on impact and third sector research evidence
  • Stalls with information and resources.  These will include the latest Third Sector Research Forum guidance paper ‘Funding for Third Sector Research’ and a new resource from the Knowledge Translation Network, ‘Community Involvement in Evidence'. 

The conference is free and is funded by Scottish Government.  Lunch and refreshments will be provided.   

The conference is currently full.  A quota system and waiting list are being used to ensure a good balance of participants from third sector, academic and other sectors.
