CSO – Academic Collaboration: Theory and Practice

CSO – academic collaboration: theory and practice



by Victoria Schoen (FRC), Rachael Durrant (University of Sussex), Mark Fishpool (Middlesbrough Environment City) and Mark Dooris (University of Central Lancashire)


The Food Research Collaboration has at its heart the bringing together of academics and civil society organisations with a common interest in UK food policy.  Over the last three years it has strived to encourage collaboration between organisations on joint ventures including a workshop in October 2016 on CSO-academic collaboration and the potential for pursuing this in the face of increasingly challenging economic and political circumstances.  This Briefing Paper stems from this workshop and offers a review of the literature on collaboration as well as a summary of the four case studies presented on the day.
