Global Challenges Research Fund and Collaborative Research

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in conference


We are pleased to announce a special one-day symposium on Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) projects and activities, focused on areas of interest around collaborative research, including co-production, arts and humanities research, creative practice, and humanities-oriented development ideas and activity. The event brings together both UK- and internationally-based collaborative researchers, artists and community partners to discuss practice and potential in collaboration and development. It features work from numerous GCRF and international Connected Communities projects, and includes networking opportunities.

The symposium will be of relevance to Connected Communities researchers and community partners with international and development perspectives, as well as to university researchers in general who wish to find out more about the place of the arts and humanities within GCRF, or about practices and methods of collaboration and research partnership in international contexts.

We anticipate that the day will include activities such as a screening, reading, or performance, to showcase and interrogate arts practice as research. It will also address the great deal of interest from arts and humanities within Connected Communities in collaborative research in both international and development contexts.
