Lessons learned: closing USE2015 and moving forward to USE2017

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperProfessional

Abstract

We finished USE2015 with a closing session inspired on the example of the successful closing session of USE2013 in Nelson, New Zealand. The session hosted a few different parts – you can, for instance, read about the PhD award the first newsletter we published after USE2015. Main element was that the remaining participants convened around five flipovers to summarize lessons learned at USE2015, and remaining questions to be discussed at USE2017. The flipovers were organized by various threads/themes that organized the USE2015 programme. The discussion at each one was presided over by a participant: Karel-Jan Alsem (health care organisations as SMEs); William Cockburn (ESENER and SESAME); Sisse Grön (national and sector level occupational safety and health); Garrett Burnett (firm level occupational safety and health); and Louis Polstra (governance, employment & SMEs). After some time for discussion around each flipover, Hans-Jörgen Limborg and Harm van Lieshout lead the crowd in a full circle along all five flipovers, and interviewed the ‘flipover chairs’ and some others on lessons learned and questions to be discussed. We summarize some of those lessons and questions for each of these five themes in section 2. Section 3 presents three general lessons and questions from USE2015 to USE2017. Section 4 presents the host of USE2017.
