This is the final report for the Nesta-funded phase of the Isotope project, which ran from January 2007 to July 2009. In this report the authors document: the wider context within which the project was conducted, alongside an overview of some of the core research findings (Section 1); the aims of the project (Section 2); the management of the project, noting how the key project milestones were achieved, including some of the problems encountered and lessons learned (Section 3); the various outputs from the project, including a description of the website and research papers (Section 4); the evaluation of the project deliverables, noting how the findings informed further website development (Section 5); the impacts of the project (Section 6); and, finally, a brief overview of the future plans for Isotope (Section 7).
High and low resolution versions of the report are available for download from the Isotope site - see below. Alternatively, you can download a copy from the Open University's Open Research Online Repository ( http://oro.open.ac.uk/20090).
We have a small number of printed reports that can be sent on a first-come-first-served basis. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a printed copy.
The Isotope website continues to be maintained and developed currently involving support from the Open University, UK.
