A Collaborative Journey at Wallacespace, St Pancras: April 27th 2009
On Monday 27th April the AHRC/BBC Knowledge Exchange Programme will, hopefully, bask in its finest hour as we showcase the collaborative research projects co-funded by both our organisations to an audience of academics, BBC staff, research councils, innovation agencies, government quangos and maybe the odd journalist.
Two years after the pilot funding call was announced we have a heap of insightful findings and recommendations to impart on a range of BBC activities and output around community, learning journeys, accessibility, fan behaviour, user generated content and virtual worlds. And as we explore ways in which knowledge transfer like this can impact on the BBC, there'll also be a panel discussion chaired by digital media guru Bill Thompson where we'll be trying to surface ways in which we can we can build on the existing partnership model we already have in place with the AHRC.
