Collaborative projects

The collaborative projects scheme promotes NCRM members coming together to undertake collaborative work. These collaborative projects include staff from NCRM as well as people from other ESRC investments in the research methods field.

The activities are primarily research orientated, although conferences and other events bringing together researchers from across different research traditions have also been organised. These projects allow new knowledge and new perspectives to emerge by bringing people together to look at an issue from a range of angles, and to reflect on general processes (such as methodological innovation and interdisciplinary working) with which all parts of the Centre are engaged in different ways.
