Rick Delbridge will speak over the topic “Escaping the ‘Theory Cave’: Public Value and Delivering on Researchers’ Responsibilities to Society”
In this session, Rick Delbridge will reflect on how a public value approach can shape a research agenda that sees researchers engage directly with societal problems. Building from previous work (Delbridge, JMS 2013; Kitchener & Delbridge, AMLE 2020), Delbridge will explore the potential of inter-disciplinary, societal challenge-oriented research. The publications are attached to this invitation.
