We believe that the deepening interest in co-ops demands a fresh approach to co-operative research. Throughout each academic year we run blended learning research skills courses which are focused on researching co-ops and developing research skills more generally. 

Not only do we explore how research methods such as participatory, action and ‘social research’ methods can be used to investigate the co-operative and co-operator landscape, we also aim to provide a space to encourage participants to reflect on contemporary co-operative ‘research gaps’. 

Details of any research focused courses that we're running will always be added on this page, as well as over on our open courses page. You can view this using the button below
