Together with Cwell, we are co-creating step by step digital tools and resources – for students involved in community engaged learning and for community partners – to design, deliver and evaluate community-university projects. We value the opportunity to evaluate these in real communities. During the two years of this project, Cwell students will collaborate with a number of community towns to co-design and deliver: community consultations, profiling, project planning, management and collaboration.

I would like to give my recommendation to Pat Kennedy and all the team at eTownz. I have worked with them on different web development, design and data-related projects and I found them to be extremely knowledgeable of digital services and how to bring together many aspects of a project to deliver a seamless end solution. We are currently actively working with them on two projects and look forward to working with them in the future on various projects. UL is a forward-thinking university and it’s so important that the research methodologies and findings are distributed in a coherent and suitable manner to the target audience and eTownz use all their experience in this area to great effect.
