The CEADES Foundation in Cochabamba, Bolivia, as a member of the InSPIRES consortium, invites the university community and interested researchers to participate in the International Conference on Research with Community Participation, to be held in Cochabamba, Bolivia, April 6-8, 2020.
The main objective is to spread the concepts and methodology of Research with Community Participation under the «Science Shop» model (which can be translated into Spanish as «Encuentro entre ciencia y sociedad») in the Latin American context, and to organize a network of researchers and students committed to and capable of responding to demands from organized civil society, particularly from the most vulnerable groups, regarding issues related to health, the environment and water.
The Conference consists of two stages:
- A first stage (conferences and presentation of scientific posters, day 1), where the theoretical concepts and experiences of research with community participation carried out in Bolivia and other countries such as Spain, Argentina, France, Holland, Brazil and Ecuador will be presented.
- During the second stage (participatory workshop, days 2 and 3) a workshop will be held (limited places) with the aim of providing practical training in «Science Shop» model methodology, and how it can be adapted for the Latin American context.
