Partners and networks
We’re committed to sharing best practice and our partners and networks bring together individuals and organisations to learn and exchange new knowledge and skills.
Current partners and networks
We deliver advanced social research methods training through our partnership with the National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM). In January 2020 NCRM entered a new phase with an ESRC award for 5 years. The new phase focuses on delivering a comprehensive programme of cutting-edge research methods training across the UK.
We deliver open courses working with our partner the Social Research Association, the professional membership body for the social research industry.
NatCen contributes to the Q Step programme, which offers comprehensive training in quantitative methods to social science undergraduates at 15 universities across the UK.
This international network of researchers from different disciplines and sectors share their experiences of using social media via Blackboard Collaborate, blogs and Twitter chats. This project was initially funded by the National Centre of Research Methods and is run in partnership with the Oxford Internet Institute and SAGE Publications.
