Living Knowledge network
The Living Knowledge network strives for more societal involvement in academic research. They inspire researchers to do research with and for civilians or civil society organisations, and to share the results of this research with these communities. It aims to get more insight in how academic research works, to create strong relations between the university and the civil society and to strengthen the open debate about science. The Living Knowledge network celebrates their 20th anniversary in 2020.
The UG Science Shops (Dutch: wetenschapswinkels) were one of the founding fathers of the Living Knowledge network since 2000 onwards. They have been involved in the founding of multiple science shops in Europe and the world. The science shop is a part of the university, which connects questions from civil society organisations with research done by students. The Groningen Science Shops are spread across multiple faculties: Bèta, philosophy, public health and medicine, education, language, culture and communication and SME Student Consultancy.
