The EMoTICON Network has now had a couple of very fruitful information exchange meetings with Tristram Riley-Smith from Cambridge University, who is the RCUK External Champion for the Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security Research (http://www.csap.cam.ac.uk/network/tristram-riley-smith/?page=3 ).
In November 2014 Tristram came to the University of Sheffield to meet with all the EMoTICON Project PIs, to find out more about our research and to let us know about the work he is doing with PaCCS. In May he visited Loughborough for a catch-up meeting with Mike Wilson, Network PI, which also included a discussion with Leanne Melbourne, a research intern working with Tristram on a study looking at the value of academic networks.
Tristram’s role within PaCCS has a particular focus on impact and knowledge exchange and he is very keen to help projects extend their networks with policymakers and other stakeholders. More information on the work of PaCCS can be found at http://www.paccsresearch.org.uk/ and their twitter handle is @PaCCSResearch.
