Candidates are welcome to apply for a PhD scholarship organised by Manchester Metropolitan University and co-supervised by the Co-operative College about co-operative place making using Rochdale, the capital of co-operation as a case study.
The research will take a longitudinal approach to co-operative placemaking in Rochdale with a specific focus on building community cohesion, skills, co-operative capital and collective entrepreneurship through heritage. It will inform a transferable and scaleable co-operative placemaking methodology and a model of social value.
The project is expected to start in September 2017. The application deadline is 31 January 2017.
