Collaborating: working in partnership to solve problems together drawing on each other’s expertise

We work in partnership with the public, policy-making bodies, industry and government organisations to solve problems together.

Heritage Hub

The University of Hertfordshire benefits enormously from relationships with community organisations in Hertfordshire and beyond. With funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council's Connected Communities scheme, the Heritage Hub runs a programme of activities and events, including the Oral History Archive, to expand these opportunities and develop new partnerships.

If you are interested in these ideas or have one of your own that you would like us to consider, then contact us at

Public Involvement in Research Group (PIRg)

The Public Involvement in Research Group is part of the Centre for Research in Primary and Community Care (CRIPACC) and is composed of members of the public, service users and carers. Not only do PIRg members provide a lay perspective to our research but they are increasingly involved in co-producing the research that we undertake, including co-applicants and co-researchers on projects.

Collaboration with business

Through research and development and Knowledge Exchange we work collaboratively with businesses across the UK leading to the development of new products and services and extending knowledge in areas of mutual interest.
