Children and Childhood Network

Research with Children: The Children and Childhood Network

The University of Nottingham is world renowned for its research in children, childhood, adolescence and young adulthood.

The Children and Childhood Network provides a focal point for the combined knowledge and expertise of leading academics across several schools, departments, and research priority areas within the University.

The Children and Childhood Network

The Network seeks to promote the interdisciplinary study of children and childhood in order to further awareness and understanding of issues that affect their well-being and to promote greater collaboration between practitioners, researchers, policy-makers, and funders.

Since 2006 research funding relating to Children and Childhood awarded to Nottingham staff has exceeded £30m, including substantial grants from research councils, central government departments, and the European Union. Significant funding has also been provided by major foundations, trusts, and charities, as well as the NHS and local government bodies.

Our researchers have methodological expertise in experimental approaches; RCTs and other trial methodologies; meta-analysis, systematic reviews and other reviews/synthesis; secondary analysis of large datasets; surveys; evaluations; econometrics; psychometrics; and all qualitative approaches.
