Wednesday 5th February, 1-2pm #ahrcchat

Are you interested in applying for an AHRC’s Science in Culture Theme Innovation Award?

Theme Leadership Fellow Professor Barry C Smith and Ian Broadbridge, AHRC Portfolio Manager are holding a Twitter chat on Wednesday 5th February 2014 from 1pm to 2pm (GMT) to answer your questions about the Innovation Awards Call.

Proposals are currently being sought for Innovation awards to expand and explore the AHRC Science in Culture Theme in new ways. Applications are invited from researchers from any discipline or subject areas across the Arts and Humanities with a particular emphasis on areas which have not previously received funding under the Theme. Funding of up to £80,000 is available for a maximum of 12 months and awards are expected to start between October 2014 and April 2015.

The AHRC ‘Science in Culture’ Theme aims to develop the reciprocal relationship between the Sciences on one hand, and the Arts and Humanities on the other. It seeks to identify new avenues for cross-disciplinary innovation and stimulate advances in research in both the Arts and Humanities and Sciences which might not otherwise have occurred without mutual exchange.

The closing date for applications for Innovation awards is 4pm on 27th February 2014.

You can follow the AHRC Science in Culture Theme on Twitter @AHRCSciculture, and the hashtag for this chat will be #ahrcchat
