Launch of Co-production Research Toolkit and Network Event 


This event proved to be an energetic and inspiring chance for us to look at what co-produced work has been going on at the University of Leeds, what methods are being used, and the challenges that researchers might face in participating in interdisciplinary projects. 

Our speakers, from across many disciplines at the University of Leeds, described how interdisciplinary work has improved and increased the impact of their research - in sometimes unexpected and unconventional ways.  

The panel discussion looked at what themes had come out of the presentations, what opportunities co-production research offers and also asked what developments in interdisciplinary research are taking place in their own faculties. 

LSSI (and colleagues) have lots of ideas and feedback to work on as a result of the event and will continue the development of the Co-production Network at the University of Leeds. Watch this space! 

In the meantime, please do visit our Co-production webpage, and have a look at the digital Co-production Research Toolkit - it’s packed with fantastic case studies, videos and information about how to build your network at The University of Leeds. 

We would like to thank our guest speakers, panel members and everyone involved in organising this event, and who collaborated with the case studies in the toolkit.
