OUR MISSION

Research-practice partnerships, long-term mutually beneficial formalized collaborations between education researchers and practitioners, are a promising strategy for producing more relevant research, improving the use of research evidence in decision making, and engaging both researchers and practitioners to tackle problems of practice. Although promising, research-practice partnerships are challenging to create and difficult to maintain.

NNERPP aims to develop, support, and connect partnerships in order to improve their productivity.

NNERPP is a professional learning community for RPPs working in education.

We currently have 27 members in our network, reflecting a wide variety of approaches to the work.

The NNERPP RPP Knowledge Clearinghouse contains a curated collection of resources to help you with your education RPP efforts.

The 3rd NNERPP Annual Forum will be held on July 11-13, 2018 in Portland, Oregon.
