Marlies Welbie PhD has been working as a senior researcher at the Research Group Research Competence since 2018. Her motto: collaborating in practice-oriented research with the people concerned is crucial in creating meaningful impact on real-life issues.
Watching from different perspectives increases polyphony in practice-based research, the usefulness and support base of its results and therefore increases the chance of impactful research. It also gives the people concerned the opportunity to have influence on its content and goals.

In her research Marlies focuses on the question how professional researchers can collaborate best with non-professional researchers in order to increase the impact of practice-based research. She is especially interested in the collaboration of researchers and people with experiential knowledge.
