Community-Academic Research Links

Community-Academic Research Links is an initiative in UCC which provides independent research support to Civil Society Organisations, e.g. community and voluntary groups, in the region. The research is undertaken by students in collaboration with the community partnersacross a wide range of disciplines and usually free of charge.

This website will tell you more about who we are and our research model, which is also known as the ‘Science Shop’ model or as ‘community-based participatory research’. You can find information on how to get involved (for civil social organisations, students and project supervisors) and you can download copies of all our past research reports. To get startedplease watch the introductory video below and then click on the links on the left!

We are looking to partner with community and voluntary groups for new projects! Click here for more information on how to apply to do a piece of research with CARL ---> CARL Call for New Projects 2014/2015
