Next Generation Design Research workshops

Led by Professor Paul Rodgers, the AHRC’s Design Leadership Fellow, the Next Generation Design Research workshops have been created to help you to understand what funding the AHRC currently offers and how to best prepare your AHRC funding application.

On the day, there will be opportunities to meet with past and present AHRC design research award holders and network with other Early Career Researchers.
Our Next Generation Design Research workshops are half-day workshops that will explore the processes involved in applying for an AHRC grant.

Who should attend?

The workshops are particularly aimed at:

  • early career researchers looking to secure their first AHRC funding grant
  • current postgraduate students who will shortly be eligible to apply for AHRC early career researcher funding.

Harry Kerr, the AHRC Portfolio Manager for Design, will share his knowledge and expertise on how to address the requirements needed to develop a solid funding proposal, and how to avoid some common mistakes made when applying.


The agenda will include:

  • a briefing from the AHRC Design Leadership Fellow, Professor Paul Rodgers
  • presentations from successful AHRC design research award holders
  • presentations from the host institution’s research support office
  • presentations from AHRC
  • Q&A sessions and networking opportunities.

Please see the individual event pages, listed below, for further details.

Why attend?

  • Get inspired and learn about successful design research projects
  • Ask the AHRC team and local Research Support Officer about funding and application processes
  • Meet and network with potential research partners.
