  1. […] here’s a question for you – and hope we can work through this, as it may be key to our community sustainability in the longer term […]

    one aspect of “community generated activities” […] am currently attempting to cultivate is recognising and valuing our outreach activities, particularly if they should be intra-[…] (or indeed any other publically funded body) as novel examples of ultimate cost-savings to UK taxpayers

    […] the outreach activity […] will be engaged in next week offers a bursary of […] GBP to the invoicing institution in respect of my time

    […] would like to claim this bursary, and then add it to my […] account in order to support further activities in due course […]

  2. What you want to do

  3. […] I would like to add the bursary of […] GBP to Aporia’s […] community generated activity budget. This bursary is on offer to me from the […] research community in respect of my own time spent engaging in this outreach work […]

  4. Is it a community/cluster .group activity or an individual activity

  5. […] The outreach work was undertaken as a proof of concept for Aporia’s approach to technology transfer by taking the time to visibly contribute to the […] research community […]

  6. What are the aims of the activity

  7. […] The aim of this outreach work was to exemplify Aporia’s approach to cultivating research through social enterprise – in this case, this approach may result in a novel reallocation of […] project funding between two mutually exclusive research communities, resulting in new ways of implementing an internal cost efficiency that would have otherwise have been missed. Importantly, it would have been difficult to justify my time spent contributing to the […] research community today if the bursary had not been on offer by way of some valuation of this time spent […]

  8. What are the expected outcomes

  9. […] Primarily, […] members should have the option of adding funds to their community generated activity budget by invoicing other projects for their time spent on the same. As an aside, this may give an indication of how future projects may be structured in order to encourage spontaneous collaborations across funding projects and contract-holders, resulting in a net cost saving to […] and/or UK taxpayers as a whole […]

  10. How will you inform the […] community of your activity

  11. […] By blogging how Aporia managed to (paradoxically) derive a negative cost for community generated activity, before spending it on something else, thereby getting multiple mutually beneficial “activities” for the “price” of one […]

  12. How can the […] Team help you with your activity

  13. […] By officially invoicing the following person on behalf of myself “for […] GBP in respect of the time spent contributing to the […] research community on […]”
    […] Please note that having discussed this innovation with […] today, she is expecting to be emailed an invoice from the […] community on my behalf in the next couple of days […]

  14. What funding do you require for your activity

  15. […] minus […] GBP 🙂 […]

  16. Hi […] I have been teaching and marking a lot of papers and had to think for a half a minute about this one […]

    Great idea. I don’t see why this should not be possible. […]? Any reason? This is one of the advantages of […] holding the funds outside of a University finance system and accounting by team. I like the idea of having a mechanism to pool funds from disparate sources. Do we need to wonder/worry about audits? If the other project is happy for you to do this, I don’t see why not and the cost is -£[…] 😉

    […] I do think this represents a big e-admin iceberg and is a question worth pursuing. Institutional finance can open a can of mixed metaphors. Do we have any finance officers into Web2.0 and agile accounting to match agile development? […]

    Yes, do it, unless […] screams no. […], please see below? […]

  17. […] Thank you for your email – great to get this ball rolling: more social enterprise subtleties to follow 🙂 […]

  18. […] Now, here’s a second leg of Aporia’s community boundary spanning initiative – this time at a proposed cost of […] to Aporia’s individual […] account, and so at first glance matching in financial terms that which is being received in, i.e. in socioeconomic terms, such pathfinding for social enterprise activity will appear to be generating something for nothing […] though, importantly, not from nothing […] and this is the point that I hope we can all leverage on in due course […]

  19. Hi […], In […]’s absence, and regarding the […], please accept this email as the go ahead to attend this event […]

  20. […] Benefits Realisation […] The aim of this proposal is to capture lessons being learned through participation within and at the boundaries of the […] Community arising from Aporia’s participation and pathfinding collaborations across the […] Uniquely, Aporia’s project Aporia Green has been socially constructed as a project that by nature emerges between other project bids (see APPENDIX B) and, as such, did not itself apply for independent funding under the terms of the […] Programme call, but rather opted to pursue a service-oriented approach to operating between bids and bidders. This comprises a phenomenological (or ethnomethodological) approach to open community development, and it is this approach that has been actively generating the ongoing lived experiences that are to be reflected upon during the proposed event.
    The proposed event has been organised as part and parcel of a long-standing international open community of phenomenologists and ethnomethodologists who have been meeting annually for the past 46 years under the auspices of the […] and its related sister-communities. The annual gathering spans 3-4 generations of practicing phenomenologists including those who founded the original fora, those who have been students of that first generation of community of practice, and now also, those who have arisen out of multiple other academic disciplines and institutional environments who are actively seeking to join the teaching, learning, research, and administrative support endeavours that comprise the growing open community as a whole.
    In particular, this open community of scholars are being increasingly informed, through their everyday participation in academia across the continents, of the pros and cons of social software use and its development. As such, cross
    fertilisation of experiences between our concentrated […] Programme efforts and this particular open community of ongoing teaching/learning/research/support practice comprises a trajectory of benefits realisation that would otherwise be lost to view […]
