UK — NatCen Social Research has entered into a collaboration with the global, not-for-profit, research institute, RTI International.

The three-year agreement commits the two organisations to allocating resources for future joint working on specific methodological projects, and exchanging knowledge and expertise.

The first joint activity will involve a series of methodological master classes in different European capital cities during 2014 and NatCen and RTI will also be exploring opportunities to jointly bid for work from the European Union coming out of the Horizon 2020 research and innovation framework.

Penny Young, chief executive at NatCen Social Research, said: “In RTI International we have found a social research organisation that shares our values and our commitment to methodological innovation and will help us expand our reach outside of the United Kingdom and open up new markets. “
