We’d like to say a huge thank you to all the attendees, speakers, and organisational staff who helped make the Investigating Academic Impact conference on 13th June a success.
Almost 400 academics and researchers from across Europe were in attendance for a day of discussion and debate, covering topics such as the role of research mediators, blogging and academic communication, and innovative methods for public engagement.
Throughout the day, attendees used the Twitter hashtag #lseimpactconf to report key information from speakers, debate some controversial questions, and feed back opinions and experiences from the day.
More resources available this week
Over the next week you can look forward to:
- Free podcasts of all the sessions
- Speaker presentations from most of the sessions
- Photos taken throughout the day
- Blog posts from speakers and attendees reflecting on some of the key discussion points of the conferences
All of these will be available under the Impact Conference 2011 tab. If you have any questions or comments about the day then please get in touch via Impactofsocialsciences@lse.ac.uk
What’s next for the Impact project?
We’re also pleased to announce a series of smaller seminars which will take place over the next year. Each session will focus on a particular aspect of the impact debate, again with a fantastic selection of speakers.
More details will follow shortly, under the future tab Impact Events.
