Measuring the Public Value of Arts and Humanities Research, 25th October
The conference will showcase collaborative research between the Dublin Institute of Technology’s Higher Education Policy Research Unit, the University of Twente’s Center for Higher Education Policy Studies, and the Nordic Institute for Studies in Innovation, Research and Education. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Jordi Molas Gallert, Professor at the Spanish Council for Scientific Research.
The format for the event includes a mix of keynote presentations, presentation and discussions of findings from the project, responses and contributions from participants in the HERA project, and a concluding policy roundtable.
Building on the findings from a thirty-month European research project, the conference aims to provide an intellectual space to discuss, debate and most importantly, attempt to answer three key questions:‑
(1) How can ‘good’ public value be better defined as a concept?
(2) Who are the various publics for research in the humanities, and what do they value about humanities research?
(3) How can research policy better reflect different user needs and demands for arts and humanities research?
This event discusses these questions in an international comparative context, to create a deeper understanding of the practical approaches that have been adopted in a range of countries, to identify a set of boundary conditions for ‘excellent’ impact by humanities research.
