LIAiSon Workshop Series

LIAiSon: Call for workshops


talking lightbulbs


The LIAiSon series supports workshops and focused meetings, intended to bring together expertise across the University of Leicester to address important, timely research ideas and challenges. Topics can be thematic, methodological, or practice-focused, but must invite interdisciplinary thinking or ways of working.

Workshops will normally be:

-          Held on campus and run for no more than one day

-          Attract a breadth of attendees from across all three Colleges

-          Provide an opportunity to include a small number of key external stakeholders

LIAiSon workshops and focused meetings will be supported by the LIAS office, and an Institute team member will be available to support facilitation. We encourage applicants to use video conferencing where appropriate.
