Project Director: Julian Dobson
Project Duration: 2023-2024
This project aims to build a network to maximise knowledge around the opportunities and challenges high streets and town centres present, and mobilise that knowledge to support universities' civic impact and net zero ambitions.
Within this 12-month project, we aim to develop research bids; organise in-person and online network development events; map relevant research activity across and beyond the UK to identify evidence gaps and build academic connections; and identify key actors in business, practice and policy with whom we can develop long-term partnerships.
The project team also includes Cristina Cerulli and Ben Archer (Sheffield Hallam University).
