The Trust also announced the launch of a new CO Researchers Network, which is now open to members. Membership to the Network will provide access to the latest CO news and events. It will focus on knowledge sharing and transfer, promoting cross-sectoral and collaborative working.

The Network will also provide the opportunity to develop consortia for large research projects. Ultimately, it will create an umbrella to develop a broad and ambitious CO Research Strategy.


It’s free to join. The Trust is encouraging all researchers to sign up today.
