Using our collections to solve the big problems of our time
The University’s extensive collections in museums, libraries and archives encompass the history of life on earth, including much of human history and culture.
Collections-Connections-Communities (CCC) is an interdisciplinary research Initiative, which will use the collections in new ways that address the key challenges of our time:
Our approach is to build communities of researchers, including academics and our audiences, in physical and digital spaces, to develop new ways of thinking that could eventually influence policy-makers. We aim to transform the relationship between researchers and the public, nucleating debate around societal challenges to create future pathways towards more just, creative, sustainable and inclusive futures.
Our website is now live at https://www.ccc.cam.ac.uk/. To keep up-to-date with our activities, follow our Twitter @CamGLAMresearch or sign up for our mailing list HERE
