Working with Us

We work together with community groups, businesses, government and professional bodies to develop projects linking research, practice and teaching.

We work with communities to identify agendas for engaged research and/or co-designed action. We promote innovation in knowledge transfer and research dissemination. 

We are keen to extend our meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships beyond the university with:

  • the voluntary sector and community groups
  • the business sector
  • government
  • professional bodies including RTPI, RICS and RIBA

We teach with our partners by creating opportunities for students to develop their skills. This boosts students' confidence in working with varied stakeholders. Through these initiatives, we create real change in small places.
