Abstracts for Keynote Speakers Published

We have published the abstracts of our four keynote speakers at ECREA 2022. Each of them addresses the overall theme of Rethink Impact from a different perspective, discussing their experiences and research through a Rethinking lens and suggesting ways forward on how impact can be understood and achieved.
