AHRC funding for skills development
Date: Jul 18, 2012
The AHRC’s new Collaborative Skills Development call aims to support the development of innovative, collaborative training packages that will meet a range of capacity issues in the arts and humanities. It focuses on developing skills amongst students and Early Career Researchers for future careers in research and other contexts.
The call will offer funds of up to £3,000 to student-led initiatives to establish and run collaborative skills programmes.
Applications should propose the development of skills within one of the following areas:
• Partnership working including public engagement
• Entrepreneurship and the Creative Economy
• Research Skills Enrichment
Applicants are welcome to propose innovative forms of skills development and training for students and early career researchers, but the AHRC will also accept applications proposing conferences and workshops, placements and internships, business plan type competitions and entrepreneurs-in-residence, study visits and electronic resources, to name just a few examples.
Proposals must be collaborative, involving at least two separate universities, or a university and a non-academic organisation.
The call is not restricted to current AHRC-funded students.
The closing date is Thursday 20 September 2012.
For more details of the call see the AHRC website.
