A collaboration between The University of Manchester, Edinburgh University, Essex University, Lancaster University and Leeds University with Fellowships based at Cardiff University, Queens University Belfast and The University of Salford
The programme of research consists of seven main projects. Five are original and innovative empirical research projects designed to understand better the mechanisms and processes involved in changing practices in three domains of everyday life that are critical for sustainability. The projects are being undertaken by different teams in the Universities of the SPRG partnership. They run independently on a day to day basis, with the results being integrated together by the investigators and researchers under the auspices of a sixth project, ‘Theoretical Integration’. Integration will also draw upon the activities and outputs of four Fellowships which are on topics of direct strategic relevance to the central objectives of the Programme. The seventh project, ‘Engagement, Interaction and Influence’, contains iterative action research and dissemination activities for the whole programme.
