Since its inception in 2005 the CRN has run numerous workshops, symposia, round-tables, and other forms of research collaboration. While many of the outcomes are hard to quantify and must be measured in terms of contributions to knowledge and understanding, there are some key indicators of the success of the Network. Here are lists of publications and research grants awarded to CRN participants since 2005.

Some of the grants—but very few of the publications—may have been achieved without the CRN, but we maintain that the intellectual space and resources of the Network have made these outcomes possible.
