All researchers on commons or commons-related topics at a Dutch or Belgian university or research institute are invited to join the UU Commons Event. During the event, commons researchers are invited to pitch their work on current commons-projects to other attendants and to other interested parties online (via recordings using Lecturenet).
For participants in Utrecht
The goal of the event is to bring commons researchers together, get to know each other’s projects, exchange knowledge, and provide ground for future collaborations. The event will start at 13:00 with an informal lunch during which participants can get a chance to interact and to get to know each other’s work better. At 14:00 the official program will start, which will consist of several short project pitches (8 minutes per presenter). After each pitch there will be a few minutes for clarifying questions, but all participants are urged to discuss and exchange afterwards as well.
call for presentations
If you want to be one of the pitchers during the event, it is still possible to sign up. For details, have a look at the ‘Call for Presentations’. Please note that the UU Commons Event is connected to the IASC World Commons Week. With your permission the presentation will be recorded and posted online for participants in the World Commons Week. You can sign up until Friday September 20th, but the sooner the better: As we continuously assess presentation submissions we cannot guarantee that any spots will still be available.
For World Commons Week participants
After the event, all project pitches will be posted on this website. We will include contact details, giving you the opportunity to reach out to the presenter with any questions or ideas you might have. As such, we can facilitate discussions beyond the limited time frame of the local event.
