The Transition Research Network is a self-organising group of academics & community activists who aim to:

  • help advance understanding and practice in Transition
  • support Transition groups to address their research needs
  • help transform the crisis in our universities into an opportunity for positive change in research culture, making research relevant, fulfilling, and fun.

Following on from our first meeting in Manchester (28th November 2011), our second meeting, will develop the network further through:

  • World Café discussion on key research needs of the Transition movement and how to support them
  • envisioning a distinctively Transition research strategy though the world’s first research ‘permablitz’
  • Open Space discussion about whatever you choose to bring
  • finding research partners to identify and undertake vital transdisciplinary research and access appropriate funding calls to do so
