None in Three’s recent India Summit (10-15 June 2019) saw researchers, practitioners and advisors from across the globe congregating in Mumbai for a packed week of events, hosted by ISDI School of Design and Innovation.
External events during the week helped to raise the profile of None in Three’s research amongst an Indian audience, as well as building the research profile of host institution, ISDI. These included:
- a one-day conference exploring innovative and international approaches to gender-based violence prevention
- a public lecture on the links between child abuse and psychopathy
- a business engagement event
- a symposium on the impact of gender-based violence on children, and the role of educational and other professionals in preventing it
- a workshop on developing serious, prosocial computer games, informed by research
Ni3 colleagues also participated variously in at least 16 separate progress and planning meetings, taking advantage of the opportunity to meet face to face with colleagues attending from at least eight different countries and four continents!
The involvement of the Centre’s International Advisory Group was particularly welcomed, providing useful insights and ideas for follow up during the second half of our four-year GCRF funded research project.
Many first time visitors to India amongst the group were thrilled to get a just a small glimpse (in the limited time available) of the buzzing city of Mumbai, and all were grateful to the Ni3 India team and their colleagues and student volunteers at ISDI, for hosting the week’s events and providing such a warm welcome.
There was plenty of food for thought throughout the week, and all have returned to base with even more on their to do list, ready to continue delivery of qualitative and quantitative research, prosocial game development, and implementation planning for game trials in schools.
