School-University Partnership Initiative

The Research Councils UK (RCUK) funded School-University Partnership Initiative (SUPI) is a three-year catalyst scheme providing opportunities for schools and universities to bring contemporary research to life for young people.

Six initial projects will lay the foundations for what will become the Manchester Research Gateway, a network supporting schoolteachers and staff across the University’s four faculties.

Our aim

Our key aim is to communicate what research means across a variety of academic disciplines, while clarifying the processes and skills involved not only in gathering knowledge, but also in creating new knowledge. Our belief that research has social and cultural, as well as economic, value underpins the project.

SUPI

Working with schools within Greater Manchester, we seek to inspire the next generation of researchers by bringing secondary and sixth-form students, research staff, and teachers together. SUPI will enable young learners to discover what it is like to be a researcher and to develop the necessary skills of inquiry.
