CORNet collaborates with co-operators to develop new research projects of special value to the movement, helps to advance theory and practice of co-operative enterprise and disseminate related knowledge, and supports researchers as academics actively engaged in the co-operative movement. 

The greater emphasis placed upon ‘impact’ by the universities and research funding bodies means that there are powerful career incentives for academics to engage with wider communities like the co-operative movement, and while this is not the reason why CORNet members are enthusiastic about the network, it does mean that their efforts to work with co-operators will be given much greater support by their universities than has been the case in the past, and this can only be of benefit to all concerned.

If you're interested in joining or working with CORNET contact: Professor Tony Webster, Northumbria University
