Starting from values: evaluating intangible legacies of Connected Communities projects

Starting from Values: Evaluating Intangible Legacies is an AHRC-funded research project which looked at how to identify, evaluate and enhance the legacies resulting from projects using a values-lens.

The project brought together the partners from two Connected Communities research projects, Scaling Up Co-Design (in which The Glass-House was a partner) and the Authority Research Network.

Through the co-development of evaluation tools with project partners, the project aimed to find new ways of lending legitimacy and authority to previously unheard or less ‘tangible’ legacies of Connected Communities projects. The project also explored wider questions on shared values, authority and legacies in collaborative research projects.

This booklet explores the impact and learning of the project.
