We would like to extend an invite to Arts, Design and Social Sciences colleagues to come along to our next monthly drop-in session on Research and Enterprise. The session will be held 12.30-1.30 in the Design Staff Room on the 2nd floor of CCE2, room 207.
Members of staff from the Faculty Bidding Support Group and RBS will be on hand to talk with colleagues about any issues or questions relating to commercial engagement or research funding. You can discuss an idea you have, identify possible funders or partners, bring along a draft you are working on or anything in between.
Look forward to seeing you there!
A guide to open access monograph publishing for arts, humanities and social science researchers has been released as part of the OAPEN-UK project. The guide aims to help researchers to understand the opportunities and challenges associated with publishing a scholarly monograph in open access. It is freely available online and free print copies are available to order: http://oapen-uk.jiscebooks.org/oaguide/.
RCUK National Contact Points for Horizon 2020 have held a series of information days around the UK. A recent event in Swindon focused on European funding opportunities for Arts and Humanities researchers. Presentations covered some of the key Horizon 2020 opportunities:
Humanities researchers might also want to consider applying for the international funding that the AHRC offers. International Co-Is are eligible in various funding schemes including Research Grants, Research Networking, Follow-On Fund and some other thematic calls.
Getting involved in HERA (Humanities in the European Research Area) or applying to the Newton Fund are other ways of developing international research partnerships.
Following the AHRC’s international team’s blog, Research beyond borders, is a useful way of keeping an eye on funding opportunities for international research collaboration specific to UK arts and humanities researchers.
