Social Change Symposium at RMIT University

20 November 2023 - 24 November 2023

Open Research Practices for Social Change

The drive towards open research practices is increasing at a fast pace. From open access publishing, to developing and using open source tools, to sharing data for future use, while ensuring transparency and reflexivity, researchers are encouraged to embed openness in research practice. Beyond sharing with academic colleagues, can open research practices also foster engagement with community, government, and others outside of academe? Can being “open” in our research work facilitate adoption of innovations and lead to societal impact? What role can technology play in fostering open engagement with non-academic partners? How can we align open research practices with translation and commercialisation outcomes? This symposium explores these questions, and more, as we examine what an open future means for societal impact work.

The College of Design and Social Context and the Social Change Enabling Impact Platform are pleased to present the Social Change Symposium. Join us for a week-long program of special events and Higher Degree by Research milestone presentations.
