Global Challenge Initiative: Knowledge into Action lab | 6-8 July 2023

The Middlesex Strategy 2031 sets out “Our purpose is to create knowledge and put it into action to develop fairer, healthier, more prosperous and sustainable societies”.

The Theme Directors are organising this event with the Chair of Postgraduate Research. Research at Middlesex engages with global challenges: we work collaboratively and across disciplines, building partnerships that benefit others through the work we do. The Knowledge-into-Action Lab is an immersive opportunity to explore and realise impactful research that embodies the values, mission and vision of the global Middlesex University. Hendon, Dubai and Mauritius campuses will be taking part.

Challenging, generative, collaborative:

  • Postgraduate Researchers and Faculty participants will collaborate with external stakeholders to address real-world problems that societal actors are grappling with.
  • Participants will be challenged to reconsider and redirect their specialist knowledge – to apply and adapt their research within a creative, engaging and interdisciplinary environment.
  • The Lab will generate tangible solutions and outcomes that may be immediately realisable, unexpected or the basis for further research.
  • The Lab will showcase the added value Middlesex can bring to external organizations. This is not an exercise in contract research but rather a generative dialogue between societal questions and challenges and critical, interdisciplinary, creative and innovative research.

The Knowledge into Action Lab seeks to develop fairer, healthier, more prosperous and sustainable societies through providing a framework to learn about, explore and experience the generation of impactful research.  The Lab will include inspirational talks by renowned speakers, facilitated workshops and small-group working, connecting postgraduate researchers and faculty across our global campuses.

The Knowledge into Action Lab will provide insights, new perspectives, and meaningful ways of addressing societal challenges and their framings across the three core Themes of the Middlesex strategy.
