The East Midlands Doctoral Network (EMDoc) Conference will be taking place at Bishops Grosseteste University this year on 19th September 2018.
The theme for the 2018 conference is ‘Impact and Exchange – making connections beyond the academy’, a chance to reflect on how your research can lead to wider impact and opportunities for knowledge exchange beyond the university. All research has the potential to create applications and impact beyond the immediate context in which it is developed, a feature which is becoming an increasingly central aspect of all research activity. Impact and exchange potential within a research project can be planned from the beginning of the process or can emerge in unexpected places as you develop your thinking. You can consider this theme within your work by reflecting on the potential for knowledge exchange, the nature of potential impacts, or a discussion of the stakeholders and/or policymakers you hope your research will reach and influence at any scale from the individual, through organisational level to national and international.
