Description: As part of its 2009/2010 programme of regional events, the AHRC is holding its London Regional Event on the 20th May at Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and 21st May at University College London (UCL).

The programme will highlight strategic issues such as collaborative research and will showcase the diverse range of AHRC-funded research and its social and economic impact on the wider world. Breakout sessions and workshops will remain an important part of the programme, as a more informal and interactive space for our colleagues in HEIs to interact with AHRC staff.

On Thursday 21st, the morning plenary session will focus on AHRC strategic vision and funding schemes. There will also be presentations from two AHRC-funded award holders to demonstrate the diverse range of research funded by AHRC. The AHRC Director of Research will take questions and you will also have the opportunity to take part in Q&A with the award holders.

This session is suitable for HEI senior management, Research Office staff and those interested in applying for AHRC funding.

Through the regional events programme, the AHRC hopes to give arts and humanities researchers, senior HEI staff and support staff, as well as non-academic stakeholders the opportunity to find out about AHRC strategic priorities, attend focused workshops and join discussions on a range of subjects; to meet each other and AHRC staff and to develop stronger links between the organisation and award holders.
