The NCCPE are pleased to announce the launch of the 4th Community University Partnership Initiative (CUPI) match event. 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.
The Birmingham match event is taking place on Tuesday 3rd July between 10:30am and 4:30pm.
Please note, 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.
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.
