Networking Workshop 2

Second TEDDINET Networking workshop

Loughborough University 4-5 June 2014

TEDDINET ran its second workshop at Loughborough University on the 4th and 5th June 2014, hosted by the (Build)TEDDI projects REFIT, LEEDR and DEFACTO. Attended by 53 researchers representing 11 of the (Build)TEDDI projects, the workshop promoted the sharing of knowledge and experiences between different projects. It also provided continued impetus to TEDDINET, ensuring that it will benefit academia, industry, policy-makers and society.

A report has been produced (see below) which outlines the structure of the workshop and provides summaries of the presentations and sessions. Day 1 of the workshop provided opportunity for all projects to give an update on their recent research, whilst during day 2 workshop participants broke into smaller groups to reflect on their own research and share ideas around 4 pre-determined themes. Powerpoint slides accompanying all of the presentations are provided (where author permission has been given) below. The report appendix includes recommendations by workshop participants for recently published reading, as well as details of all participants.
