Event Details

We are delighted to invite you to join us at The University of Glasgow's Knowledge Exchange & Engagement conference to celebrate the best of our collaborative research activity and hear updates and fresh perspectives on the latest sector developments to inspire our ongoing knowledge exchange, engagement and innovation endeavours.

The conference will be held on Thursday 30th November, 9:15am-4:30pm, at the brand-new Imaging Centre of Excellence at the Clinical Innovation Zone on the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) campus. Transport will be provided to and from the Gilmorehill campus.

The conference programme, provided below, is split into morning and afternoon sessions each of which contains a set of three interactive workshops.

 

When registering for the conference please select the main ticket option above and, once you have done this, indicate each session and workshop you would like to attend. Further details of each workshop can be found on the conference websiteWhen registering you also be asked:

  • if you would like to book one-to-one 'surgery sessions' with a range of our knowledge exchange and public engagement professionals. These 15 minute sessions will provide an opportunity to discuss, evaluate and obtain bespoke advice on your own specific research and innovation projects. Please select your preferred KE/PE professional; we will then contact you via email to confirm your allocated time slot. Note, you can book more than one surgery session if you would like to;
