Co-created, collaborative research is increasingly important in order to share different knowledges and expertise and often, working in partnerships is an expectation from research funders. Even though partnerships and collaborative working on research is desirable it can be challenging to create, develop and maintain the partnership, build and maintain trust, navigate power relations and manage expectations. Drawing from extensive experience, Silent Spring Consultants can help you! Some of the key questions we can help with are:  Who will you work with on the project? What are the key considerations for working in a research partnership? How do you build and maintain trust? How do you set up a working agreement? and navigate any ethical issues and challenges that arise?
