Tea Tverin is working with CHICKS to investigate the role of holidays and memory in young people.

Our research


We are currently working on a number of both long-term and short-term projects with our partner organisations, from three-year long PhD CASE Studentships to the several-months long Business Voucher projects.

Our research partners include charities, public bodies, and private companies, and we are working to expand current academic knowledge through the investigation of issues and challenges faced in practice.

If you would like to know more about our current projects or would like to discuss developing one for your organisation, please don't hesitate to contact us.
