(p.123) SEVEN Enacting knowledge in a European project
Knowledge in policy

Maria José dos Santos Freitas

This chapter is about how an EU-funded research partnership realises and reorders the wealth of disparate knowledge that participants from different countries bring to it - complete with their own academic cultures and professional backgrounds. The EU project is by nature set in a context saturated with multiple meanings, which only adds to the challenge of understanding the enactment of knowledge in its various forms and manifestations. This chapter analyses a single transnational meeting to illustrate how the organizational and institutional processes of interaction between project partners act as a forum for the production of knowledge. For it is during the transnational meeting that partners talk, question and listen to each other directly, face to face.

Keywords:   knowledge, policy enactment, European Union, EU, project, EU-funded research partnership, meeting, interaction
