The value of research

The Running Hot! conference I attended earlier this month has posted videos of the two keynote addresses I found most interesting.

First, Nigel Thrift on Imagining Research Value:

Bryan Crump followed up with him on research in the NZ context, and Nigel suggested that the conference could be used as a model for others:

“Let early and mid-stage career researchers really take over an event but give them high level backing. That way lie new connections and the beginnings of real inter-disciplinary efforts…”

And second, Stuart Cunningham on Transforming Research Value:

Running Hot 2010: Enhancing Value
Running Hot 2010: Transforming Value
Running Hot 2010: Creating Value
Running Hot 2010: Imagining Value
Running Hot 2010: Early Career Researcher Symposium (Pt. 1)
Running Hot 2010: Early Career Researcher Symposium (Pt. 2)
