How to…broker a successful academic partnership

A research partnership goes beyond a transaction or project evaluation. It is a relationship between academia and practice built on equality and a shared ambition to create new knowledge.

By engaging with academics to combine the expertise of the researcher and the practitioner, cultural organisations can generate impact internally and externally in ways unlikely to be achieved independently.

This guide has been created by Culture Forum North to help arts practitioners and cultural organisations consider the potential benefit of academic research partnerships; to suggest how such relationships can be initiated; how they might be developed and managed; and the potential legacy to be derived.
