Creating industry collaborations: seminar series for Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences and Technology - apply by 7 Oct

last modified Oct 06, 2016 04:13 PM
Academia meets industry: a course for researchers in the Schools of Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences and Technology at University of Cambridge in Michaelmas Term.

Through a case study on the music industry, this course will reflect critically on collaborations between academia and industry. It will do this by engaging in direct conversation with some of its stakeholders: from music producers and distributors, to users, unions and government. It will examine the multiplicity of voices, including that of scholarship, their differing perspectives and stakes in the business of making music.

By working within a multi-disciplinary team on possible directions emerging from a widely publicised contemporary challenge, this course will seek a better understanding of how collaborations between academia and industry may be sustained in the long-term and, importantly, will provide an opportunity to bring the students' own expertise to bear on this debate.

Seminars will be held on Wednesdays in Michaelmas term in CRASSH at the Alison Richard Building, 2.00-4.00pm starting on 12 October until 30 November 2016.

The course will offer an opportunity to engage with the complexities of the REF’s impact agenda and hone public engagement skills and will develop problem-solving skills of multi-dimensional, contemporary challenges that can be translated to other problems faced by different sectors of society today.

 For more information and to apply, visit the CRASSH website.

The deadline for applications is 7 October 2016. However, the convenors would still be interested in receiving applications after that date.
