About School-University Partnerships (SUP)

The SUP team sit between the Public Engagement with Research unit and the Widening Participation and Social Mobility teams at the University of Southampton. Our roles grew out of the Talk to US! School-University Partnership Initiative, and we continue to connect schools, colleges and youth groups to research and researchers for mutual benefit.

Since 2016 we have been working with local teachers, pupils, and community groups, and University of Southampton staff and students, to co-create digital and physical resources and activities for bringing the curriculum to life, inspiring future generations of researchers, and creating better informed and more impactful research.
