What is Knowledge for Change?
With an ambition to strengthen the pivotal role of knowledge and science in society, Malmö University has set out to host a series of top quality seminars. With a total of six seminars, the series will highlight topics related to societal challenges.
They will offer participants:
- Lectures by internationally top renowned keynote speakers.
- Seminars with selected researchers from Malmö University and external stakeholders.
- A series of articles related to the keynote topic.
In 2018, not only will Malmö University celebrate its 20th Jubilee but it will also be granted government funding to extensively build on its reputation within the research arena. ‘Knowledge for Change’ is one of a number of visionary steps of action to strengthen science and science’s close connection to postgraduate and undergraduate education at Malmö University.
The seminars will focus on how universities can scrutinise, challenge and help find solutions for societal problems. Our ambition is to inspire cross-disciplinary discussions and cultivate relations and alliances both in and outside of academia – locally and globally. Ultimately, we aim at positioning science and universities’ roles in the development of society.
‘Knowledge for Change’ will be coordinated by Pro Vice-Chancellor and Social Work Professor at Malmö University, Tapio Salonen. Upcoming seminars, keynote speakers and further details will be announced in due course.
