Connecting Research on Employment and Work (CREW)

network

Connecting Research on Work and Employment (CREW) is a new network founded with the approval of Senate in 2014. The CREW network is devoted to the promotion and development of research on work and employment in the broadest sense. It seeks to facilitate interaction between researchers across departments and faculties, and provide a common focal point for the internationally recognised work and employment research community at the University of Warwick. As a supportive, cross-departmental network we are developing synergies:

  • to highlight the University of Warwick's existing excellence in research on work and employment across a wide range of sectors, organizations and regions
  • to facilitate new research and dissemination through contact between researchers working on a range of employment issues, now and in the past, in different kinds of institutions and organizations, from health care to manufacturing, and informal and household work
  • to bring researchers and practitioners to Warwick to participate in conferences, joint research workshops, seminars and lectures
  • to provide a broader network and joint activities for doctoral students, including joint supervision

This site contains information about who we are and the activities we organise.

CREW welcomes members and participants from all faculties and departments who have an interest in work and employment in a range of institutions and organisations and formal, informal and household contexts.
