Partnership working between academics and the third sector


A new report published by the Carnegie UK Trust suggests that public policy outcomes could be improved if academics and the third sector were to work more closely together. The report, written by Carnegie Fellow Professor Mark Shucksmith challenges traditional views of universities as sole producers of knowledge and identifies opportunities for academics and charities to work together for the public’s benefit.  The report sets out two models for better interaction including a radical co-production model which merges the boundaries between universities and the public. It also identifies 19 specific recommendations for universities, the third sector and funders to aid more effective collaboration.
