Researching and Evaluating the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games Conference

Summary of conference hosted by DCMS with Podium, the further and higher education unit for the Games.



This conference was joint hosted by DCMS and Podium, the Further and Higher Education Unit for the 2012 Games, to bring together academics working on the Games to present and discuss their work. Professor Ian Campbell (Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Brunel University) chaired the event and David Brooker (GOE Director of Legacy) gave an opening address, emphasising the scale of investment and operation required for the Games and therefore the challenge of the associated evaluation.
