Ceri Dalton, whose research is looking at challenges when evaluating co-produced projects, won the three-minute engagement/impact session competition. This is a variant on the now well-established ‘three minute thesis’ format, but with a focus on how the researcher meets challenges and/or successes with engagement or impact. The prize is in the form of a selection of recent books from two leading social science publishers. Ceri’s partner organisation is the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA).

Anne Collis, together with colleagues from Bangor University and her partner organisation Barod, won the WISERD/WCVA Collaborative Paper competition. They received a prize of £300 for their innovative presentation looking at Method issues in collaborative research. Anne’s dissertation is looking at a public consultation method developed by Barod from an ethnographic perspective.  Anne Collis, second from left, with colleagues from Bangor University and Barod, winners of the Collaborative Paper competitionAnne Collis, second from left, with colleagues from Bangor University and Barod, winners of the Collaborative Paper competition
