PhD students were invited to explore topical third sector issues with senior academics from the Third Sector Research Centre at a two-day work shop at Cumberland Lodge.

A report and presentations are now available (see right hand column).


The event aimed to develop the skills of researchers, and support them in producing high quality PhD theses which will maximise the impact of their research.

Professors Pete Alcock (University of Birmingham), John Mohan (University of Southampton), Fergus Lyon (Middlesex University), and Sarah Smith (Bristol University). 


A mix of sessions were held, including open workshops, practical talks, topical discussions, and presentations - giving students time to engage with others as well as opportunities for critical reflection.
