Dissemination as Knowledge Production in Use-inspired Research.
The second SwissGradNet Discovery Conference which took place on Friday, October 11, 2019 at Lucerne School of Art and Design in Lucerne-Emmenbrücke, Switzerland, focused on new evolving formats of dissemination, negotiation and communication of research outcomes that represent alternatives to conventional scientific formats, such as for example explorations on online platforms that argue in a multimedia way and foster interaction between humans, communities and machines, or, literary artistic approaches to knowledge production. The overall objective for the conference was to bring together and discuss current positions on what dissemination and negotiation methodologies, strategies and formats design, film and artistic research can contribute to the whole research process, that allow different approaches and represent a valuable add-on to the traditional ways of the dissemination of the research process and its outcomes.
A conference documentation & picture gallery will be uploaded by the end of October 2019 on this website.
