The Leapfrog Team invite Early Career Researchers involved in community engagement to participate in a Summer School from the 11th — 13th of July 2017 at Lancaster University.

This program of activities will offer an inspirational and supportive space to exchange insights on broader aspects of research and career development, including approaches to generating research questions, writing research bids, and engagement with diverse public audiences both for research and sharing ideas.

Areas for discussion will include, but are not restricted to:

  • Participation and co-​production with communities
  • Methods and tools for community engagement
  • Engaging with diverse and minority communities
  • Approaches for capturing the value of effective community engagement
  • The challenges of evidencing impact of effective community engagement

Bursaries and Eligibility
A number of bursaries are available to contribute to UK and EU delegates’ registration fees, travel, and accommodation expenses. The focus of the Summer School is on early career researchers (ECRs) (http://​www​.ahrc​.ac​.uk/​s​k​i​l​l​s​/​e​a​r​l​y​c​a​r​e​e​r​r​e​s​e​a​r​c​h​e​rs/). We welcome applications from individual ECRs from across the Arts and Humanities, and PhD students in their final year of study. There may be some flexibility on the eligibility criteria on a case-​by-​case basis. We are looking to be flexible and inclusive while focusing specifically on research.

The Summer School will take place at Imagination Lancaster at Lancaster University.
