Knowledge Transfer Partnership in the North
Research to Move, Teach and Inspire
Collaborative research across the North
We’ve partnered up with the University of Manchester on a project to enhance the way we work with academic research. Researchers at a range of universities across the North are working with seven National Trust places on this Knowledge Transfer Partnership project: Dunham Massey; Little Moreton Hall; Lyme; Nostell; Sizergh; Speke; and Quarry Bank.
The National Trust and Academic research
The National Trust has a long history of working with academic researchers, and some brilliant and innovative projects have been the result of collaboration between the Trust and universities. This KTP project will help to build on the existing relationships, develop new ties with properties and university department, and will allow for easier, longer-term collaboration.
The Trust has recently launched a new 10-year strategy. As part of this we're rethinking the way in which we respond to our buildings, collections and outdoor spaces. We aim to offer visitors an experience that ‘moves, teaches and inspires’ and deepens the connection people have to the places we look after. Engaging more with academic research will help us to deliver this.
