Applications for this year's programme closed in late September 2022. However, we would still welcome any researchers who would like to get involved this year, staff and graduate students at all career stages are welcome.

Launched in 2021, Science Together is an exciting new programme, connecting Oxford’s community groups with researchers from the University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes University to respond to major issues and questions  impacting the lives of local people. These research projects are defined by the community groups, and have practical outcomes that address particular challenges or opportunities they have identified for people who live and work in Oxfordshire.

Our pilot year in 2021/22 was a great success. The community groups involved were collaborating with us on a diverse range of topics, from the evolution of hip-hop technology, to the importance of freeform play for children, the potential of wearable tech for dementia sufferers, and much more besides.


There are seven great community organisations on board with Science Together this year, with exciting research collaborations now underway, involving researchers and staff facilitators from both Universities.

While our new projects are now well underway, there is still scope for researchers and facilitators to get involved. Staff and graduate students at all career stages are welcome.
