Knowledge Hub

Festival of Knowledge 2014–15

Welcome to our first Festival of Knowledge. We hope this will become an annual event showcasing the diverse and innovative work of our Knowledge Clusters – expert groups who are working with a range of external partners to make sense of some of the biggest challenges facing business, government and communities.

The festival offers a varied programme of activities, debates, screenings and workshops that we hope will provoke, excite and challenge new audiences. We want to use the Festival to showcase our research and to place it alongside practitioner knowledge in spaces where we can innovate practical ways of thinking about tackling new opportunities and tricky challenges.

We are also really keen to help partners put their own data to work and so hope to use the Festival to forge new partnerships for impactful research projects. We would be delighted if you could join us and help make the Festival of Knowledge as interactive and successful as possible.
