"The TRN is currently coordinated (in alphabetical order) by: Michelle Bastian, Naresh Giangrande, Jo Hamilton, Tom Henfrey and Larch Maxey.

"The Network grew out of an interest group on researching transition that met for the first time at the 2010 Transition Network conference in Newton Abbot, Devon, then at the 2011 conference in Liverpool. The meeting at the 2011 conference agreed to seek funding to develop a network of academics and transition activists interested in collaborating on research. It also encouraged steps towards addressing specific issues concerning the relationship between Transition and academic research that remained unresolved ever since researchers first started to contact Transition Network in 2007. In September 2011, as a direct out come of steps taken following the Liverpool conference, Transition Network, in partnership with academics at Durham University’s Centre for Social Justice and Community Action, along with Bradford, Glamorgan and Manchester Universities, were awarded a £78,000 grant in the AHRC’s Connected Communities programme for a project that explored the relationship between Transition and Academia in a variety of ways.
