Community University Partnership Initiative (CUPI) - Bristol Application form

The Community University Partnership Initiative supports community organisations, community businesses and charities to work with researchers in mutually beneficial ways.

Please note that submitting an application does not confirm your place at the match event. We will be back in touch following registration to confirm if you have been successful in gaining a place at the event. Application deadline - 22nd February. 

The CUPI project is a small pilot co-funded by AHRC and Power to Change, which, if successful, we will seek to roll out across the UK. The approach 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.
