Engaged Researcher Training: Co-creation with non-academic partners: future-proofing your project Finished 11:00 - 12:30 Department of Physics, Maxwell Centre, Orange Boardroom (Floor 2)

In this session we’ll explore some of the future proofing you can undertake to ensure a lasting impact from co-created work derived from public engagement and impact projects.

There are many good reasons to identify likeminded collaborators from civil society, business and industry, policy, third sector organisations, and communities affected by or with expertise in your areas of research, and to engage them in designing public engagement and impact strategies. But how can you future-proof these relationships so that everyone is fairly represented, and so that all parties can benefit from the opportunities of the collaboration.

We’ll talk about how to have early conversations with co-creation partners around funding, intellectual property, copyright and attribution, and the roles and responsibilities of collaborators and participants. We’ll focus throughout on how to create and agree future impact pathways which could include open/creative commons or commercial licensing of tools, media or other co-created assets; social entrepreneurship and activism; ongoing research, public engagement and impact partnerships.

The aim is to give you confidence at the outset of collaborative public engagement projects, and to make sure you understand where to get help within the University.

Emma is Commercialisation Manager for Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at Cambridge Enterprise. Her academic background is in literature and theology, and she has been involved in social innovation and heritage outside of the university. She works to support a wide-ranging portfolio of impact and engagement projects coming out of Cambridge AHSS research; including social enterprise; creative industry collaborations; software, media and data licensing; and consultancies.

The course will outline the two key visa routes used by the University in its recruitment of international staff – the Skilled Worker Visa and the Global Talent Visa. The aim of this course is to help those involved with recruitment and selection to navigate the rules which regulate the recruitment of individuals via these two visa routes, whilst ensuring full compliance.
