This resource has been produced by a group of diverse research management professionals, representing different disciplines and organisations to aid Network Managers and Investigators in the creation and management of research communities. We have drawn together our collective experience in managing different aspects of these NetworkPluses to produce advice and tips for best practices.

Network+ projects aim to bring together multi-disciplinary research communities, promoting various type of activities such as events, workshops for early career researchers (ECRs) development and funding competitions. The projects aim to identify, develop and feed into future research challenges and develop the future research interests in the area.
