The research team at the University of Derby are undertaking research on ‘Collaborative partnerships between universities and Muslim institutions: dismantling the roadblocks’. This is an ESRC (Economic and SocialResearch Council) funded project that builds on their previous research about Muslim faith leader training in Britain and opportunities for young British Muslims to undertake an Islamic Studies programme that is validated by Universities, which leads to a recognised and employable qualification and which meets both religious and secular criterion. More details about their research project is available on: http://www.derby.ac.uk/collaborative-partnerships-project
As part of this project, they are running a series of Knowledge Exchange Seminars across the country and take this opportunity to invite you to apply for a place. These events are designed with two purposes in mind. Firstly, to make YOU aware of their research findings about the benefits of collaborative partnerships both for Universities and for British Muslim communities and to also make you aware of existing goodpractice in this sector. Secondly, they would use the seminar as an opportunity to discuss with you, your experiences and expertise in this area. They are particularly keen to explore any barriers or obstacles that you think exist and possible solutions to these barriers.
The events are free toattend and have been organised at venues across the country (see Events page for all venues). These will be day events and will run from 10am to 5pm. Please note that halal, vegetarian and special dietary needs will be catered for (lunch and light refreshment). Prayer facilities will be provided at all venues.
