New chapter for the Nexus at Home team

Today the Nexus at Home team set off on a new stage of their research agenda. Through the workshops series of the posts below, we enabled the gathering of existing knowledge on how practice theory and related approaches have shed new light on householder’s consumption of resources, and worked through the saliency of the ‘nexus’ framing for advancing that knowledge. We have now secured funding from the ESRC Nexus Network to make the knowledge useful for informing policy intervention. Over the next year, we will be working with partners in DECC, Defra, FSA and Waterwise to better understand how knowledge informs policy, as a basis for working together to understand how a distinctive field of current social science research can be better articulated with those process.
