synergize2014 addresses the greater pressure for research to have impact on society and the economy via collaborative research where academics partner with business, community groups and the wider public.

It will bring together a range of innovators to celebrate their projects, demystify practices and terminologies and provide a forum for all stakeholders.

Keynote speakers with backgrounds in journalism, art and design, technology and computing, health and social services, secondary education, and environmental activism, will share their experiences across the conference themes of: co-design, research in the wild, citizen science, research partnerships, engagement and impact.

Who should attend?
Academics, researchers, industry professionals, technologists, business and SME’s, charitable and community organisations, students, or individuals with ambitions for new research partnerships. This may include individuals with interests in computing, art and design, business, management, social scientists, practitioners of innovation, established academics and early career researchers.
