This chapter considers how a coproduced approach to research could enable an understanding of how communities might be different. Engagement with communities at all stages of research places collaborative and participatory research methods in a central role to widen the ways community partners and universities can work together. The chapter analyses the methodologies that can be used to think about accommodating diverse opinions and tacit knowledge within communities, as well as what this reveals about processes of exclusion and integration in local communities. It also shows how universities work collaboratively with community partners to shape or construct research together. Universities can be seen as spaces where people can think, they can provide funding for innovative research projects, and they can support ways of knowing and reflective practice, creating 'living knowledge' in the process.
