The NCCPE are pleased to announce the launch of the Community University Partnership Initiative (CUPI). Funded by Power to Change and the Arts and Humanities Research Council, CUPI supports community organisations (including community businesses, charities, social enterprises, and voluntary organisations) and university researchers to create trusting and useful research collaborations which benefit all the partners involved.
Based in or near Bristol? Have you got a research idea you are keen to explore? Curious about building a new partnership? Then the Bristol CUPI match event could be a perfect opportunity to get involved.
The Bristol match event is taking place on Thursday 22nd March between 10:30am and 4:30pm.
Applications are now closed for this event.
CUPI is based on the successful MUPI programme – which found that a regional focus helped ensure people found relevant people to work with. The 4 pilot match events will be taking place in England, in line with Power to Changes remit, however applications are open to those from across the UK who identify with the geographical area of the match event. Following evaluation of the pilot programme, we will seek funding to enable us to develop more comprehensive coverage across the UK.
Find out more (including details on further match events) and register your interest for the Bristol event for the opportunity to create a new partnership, access funding and explore getting a research idea off the ground.
CUPI is jointly funded by Power to Change, an independent charitable trust that supports and develops community business in England and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) as part of the AHRC-led Connected Communities Programme and as a part of the follow-up to the Programme’s Creating Living Knowledge Report.
