Cambridge University students

Research partnerships between voluntary and community sector organisations and University of Cambridge students.

The Cambridge Community Knowledge Exchange is a research matchmaking programme, brokering partnerships between community organisations with research questions and students carrying out research in fulfilment of their degree programmes.

Organisations gain the opportunity to initiate and benefit from research projects, while students gain the opportunity to contribute to valuable causes in the Cambridge community.

We accept requests for research on many subjects. Students could work on many different issues including health and social issues in the community, environmental questions, local history, management and strategic planning, policy and legal research, information technology and more.

The Community Knowledge Exchange also supports transnational research as a partner in PERARES (Public Engagement with Research and Research Engagement with Society), a four-year project funded through the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme.
