Research network

The DNFTA research network consists of invested academics from across the natural and social sciences and humanities, plus many non-academics with relevant expertise from community, non-governmental, policy and professional organisations in the UK and beyond.

The research network have shaped the project from its inception and continue to work with us as the research progresses. Our integrative, transdisciplinary, engaged research design recognises the input, expertise and views of all our research network members irrespective of discipline and background.

We hold regular meetings with our research network to discuss planning, research design and practice, work in progress, and (ultimately) project outcomes. These meetings draw the project together, allowing us to build trust with stakeholders, share research practice and engage with the wider world.

Between the full network meetings individual members of the research team and research network continue to collaborate on specific elements of the project.
