AURIL & PraxisUnico are delighted to announce that registration is now open for our October conference.  The conference will be held at the Bristol Marriot Royal on the 5th and 6th October 2017.



We are working hard to secure speakers for this year’s event and I am delighted that Professor Anne Carlisle, Vice-Chancellor Falmouth University will be joining us. More speakers will be announced soon.

Conference Themes


This conference theme will explore how universities are using their global networks and partners to achieve more far-reaching knowledge exchange impacts and create new international business partnerships in other regions of the world.

Place and your identity 

Universities have international reach through student recruitment, alumni engagement and research. This theme will look at the growing importance of the University's sub-regional role, place based innovation and contribution to economic growth. How do Universities retain their own identity?

Funding KE

This conference theme explores the topics of resources and funding.  The three workshops will cover the different ways knowledge exchange offices are creating their own income to fund the knowledge exchange teams, using what resources they have to create maximum impact and how to fund knowledge exchange projects through non-traditional sources.

Creativity in KE  

This theme explores knowledge exchange in creative practice and the potential impact of creative practice in evolving knowledge exchange practice.

Exploring how advances in disciplines involving making and design challenge and develop KE models, this theme also explores what KE practitioners in other disciplines might learn from or incorporate from successful examples of KE in creative practice areas.

Breakout Sessions

At AURIL2017 we will have 12 different breakout sessions linked to our 4 themes.  This year you will be able to select your breakout sessions at registration. To help you make your selections, please click on this link for more information.
