21st January

Science Shop

Hosts: Matolay Réka és Pataki György

Partners: Queen’s University Belfast, The Science Shop & Ferencvárosi Közösségi Alapítvány

Introduction to the Lecture

Dr Emma McKenna has co-ordinated The Science Shop in Queen’s University Belfast for 15 years and in that time has been involved in four European Commission funded projects supporting and mentoring new Science Shops across Europe, and is currently deputy Co-ordinator of the Enhancing Responsible Research and Innovation through Curricula in Higher Education (EnRRICH) project. 

Science Shops offer a demand driven and bottom up approach to research, taking the research questions of civil society into universities and encouraging collaborative research in response to these questions, often using student researchers who are supervised by academic staff. This is an approach which gives students a valuable learning experience, provides responses to research questions for civil society and offers universities an opportunity to make a contribution to society in a cost-effective way.

This session will introduce the idea of Science Shops and will explore in detail the types of work that the Science Shop does with the Queen’s University Management School, giving examples of projects carried out.  It will also touch on the International Science Shop movement and how it fits with the European Commission focus on responsible research and innovation. There will be opportunities to reflect on these ideas and to discuss and ask questions as part of this session.

22nd January

Food Supply Chain and Air Cargo Services

Venue: E118.2 

Suthep Nimsai is a researcher from Thailand, spending 10 months in 2016 at Corvinus doing research and finding contacts at the university.

He deals with opportunities to reduce waste in food supply chains not only by fastening and rationalizing logistics processes but also by marketing small producers' products. His research is at the interface of supply chain management, agri-food trade, and marketing. He has done research in ASEAN countries but interested in the practices in European countries.

This program is about to introduce his research and to discuss potential future projects with participants.
