The AHRC have an open call for expressions of interest to attend a research development workshop addressing the challenges of Disconnection, Division and Exclusion. This event will be on 18-20 March 2014 at the Novotel Sheffield Centre Hotel as a part of the Connected Communities Programme. The aim is to stimulate the development of innovative, cross-disciplinary, community-engaged, research projects to better understand the disconnections that can occur from, within and between communities in different cultural contexts.
AHRC are seeking applications to participate in the workshop from both researchers funded under the Connected Communities programme, in addition to researchers and non academic partners not current involved but who have relevant expertise. Attendees at the workshop will have an opportunity to apply for ring-fenced funding for follow-up projects of up to £100,000 to take forward the most innovative research ideas that emerge during the workshop.
The deadline for applications to attend the workshop is 30th January. Further information is available at http://www.ahrc.ac.uk/Funding-Opportunities/Pages/Open-Call-for-applications-to-attend-the-Connected-Communities-Research-Development-Workshop-on-Addressing-the-Challenges-o.aspx
