A flagship partnership connecting cutting-edge Oxford University research with the National Trust’s inspiring places and collections has been highlighted in the National Centre for Universities and Business report.
Launched in 2018, the National Trust Partnership is a collaboration between Oxford University and the National Trust, creating opportunities for interdisciplinary research, knowledge exchange, public engagement and training across a range of academic disciplines and career levels at both institutions.
The partnership is founded upon mutual benefit and two-way knowledge exchange: it facilitates new research into the Trust’s rich portfolio of places and collections, which in turn is embedded into publicfacing programming. Meanwhile, access to the National Trust’s buildings, collections and landscapes is opened up to researchers alongside opportunities to learn from the organisation’s staff, engage with its vast public audiences, and to develop further research projects. Activities take place through a range of engagements including research placements and consultancy, conferences, workshops, public events, staff training, PhD projects and student internships.
