Helping you understand the big ideas behind special places
Between 2016 and 2018 the National Trust and the University of Oxford teamed up to create Trusted Source, an online knowledge bank of concise and accessible articles about history, culture and the natural environment, written by members of the academic community and our own specialists.
The articles explore a range of subjects from different perspectives, giving readers new insights into National Trust places and collections.
What are Knowledge Transfer Partnerships?
Trusted Source was a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP), a programme part-funded by the government which helps to spread knowledge from the academic world more widely to public bodies and the business sector.
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships are most often used in the science and technology industries and Trusted Source was the first project of its kind awarded to the Humanities Division at Oxford and the National Trust. The project was supported by the Arts & Humanities Research Council, InnovateUK and the National Trust.
