Community Research Networks
Putting communities 'at the heart' of research
The Community Research Networks programme is a new funding opportunity from UKRI, supported by The Young Foundation, that seeks to put communities at the heart of research. The project gives funding to organisations that are interested in supporting local people across the UK to play a more active role in research and innovation.
