Expressions of interest to be submitted by 31 August 2017 4pm

The AHRC is pleased to announce a call for researchers to attend a workshop on ‘Development through the Creative Economy in China’. The event will bring together academic experts from both countries to explore the potential of the creative and cultural industries in China as drivers for growth and innovation.

The Creative Economy is of growing importance to both the UK and China and has the potential to have a transformative effect on major global challenges. The workshop seeks to provide a catalyst for joint UK/China research into the Creative Economy, focussing on three key areas of Design, Heritage, and the Creative and Performing Arts.

Expressions of interest to participate in the workshop are invited from UK-based researchers meeting the AHRC’s standard eligibility requirements from all disciplines within the arts and humanities. Applicants should have a particular research interest in the topics noted in the guidance document (available below) and be able to articulate this in their expression of interest.

The workshop will take place in Shanghai, China, on the 24-26 October 2017 and will be funded through the Newton Fund – a programme that aims to develop research and innovation partnerships that promote the economic development and welfare of partnering countries.
