Research partnerships

Our research partnerships involve collaborations with research institutions, funding organisations and international associations.

Collaborative working helps us to ensure that our research engages a broader audience. Our partnerships with Imperial College London on our Continuous Update Project and the WCRF Academy on the International Course in Nutritional Epidemiology;  with the National Prevention Research Initiative on behavioural research; and recently with Wageningen University on the colorectal cancer project, have allowed us to focus resources on specific priority areas.

In addition, our collaboration with Breast Cancer Now (previously called Breast Cancer Campaign) maximises funding opportunities for UK researchers working on breast cancer, and our links to the World Obesity Federation - through successful joint conferences - allow us to share our research findings in the area of diet, nutrition, physical activity and cancer, with a wider audience.

Finally, our contribution to key working groups and other work streams led by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) recognises our authority in the area of diet, nutrition, physical activity and cancer, and ensures that we remain at the forefront of international research.
