Cupp supports the development of research partnership projects between the academic staff of the University of Brighton and local community organisations. If you are looking for a community partner who works in your area of research, contact the Cupp Helpdesk for more information.
Would you like to offer research advice to local community organisations?
The Cupp Helpdesk receives many enquiries from community organisations asking for advice and assistance with the development of research projects.
