The networks featured below incorporate both university researchers and educational practitioners - and sometimes others - working over time in a common area and often on joint research projects.
The networks may be national or international; externally or internally funded. They provide the members, and those outside the university, with a forum through which to share and debate ideas, findings, and plans.
|CamSTAR||Cambridge, School Teachers and Research (CamSTAR) is a network of researching schools across six counties in the South East/Eastern region that have grown organically as researching teachers have moved and introduced new schools to the network. The schools come together to hold conferences to disseminate their research to each other, and to informally cooperate with each other to support research in their schools.

|RITWIT (and ning)||Research Into Teaching with Whole class Interactive Technologies: RITWIT network arose from the 1st international conference on Research Into Teaching with Whole class Interactive Technologies held at University of Cambridge in June 2009 (http://www.educ.cam.ac.uk/events/conferences/ritwit/) and attended by over 80 delegates from 14 countries. This vibrant international research network builds on the considerable body of work unveiled there but aims to move it forward in new directions. It examines all facets of the pedagogy associated with the use of interactive digital technologies in schools.

It also aims to research the development of research within the partnership. The partnership is a between nine secondary schools and the Faculty of Education and has been in existence for over ten years. Currently the partnership is engaging in a joint research project on pupil engagement, is studying the process of joint enquiry and is running a Masters course for the schools involved.
