The Arts and Humanities Research Council invites applications for its highlight notice for cross-disciplinary research networks exploring emerging areas of cross-council enquiry. This supports cross-disciplinary proposals addressing boundary-crossing engagement in relation to emerging issues in science and technology. The following topics are particularly encouraged:
- conflict, transnational organised crime and cybersecurity
- cities, urbanisation, urban living and smart cities
- valuing nature
- antimicrobial resistance
- emerging areas of science and technology, such as the internet of things, robotics and autonomous systems, synthetic biology, regenerative medicine and wearable technologies
Applications should be lead by arts or humanities researchers and include a plan for significant participation by science researchers, a commitment to cross-disciplinary working and an interest in emerging areas where there has been little collaboration between the arts and sciences.
