AHRC launches new event series for the arts and humanities research community

Date: 21/08/2019

From November 2019 to February 2020, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) will be touring the UK with a series of free one day events packed with panel sessions, speakers and networking opportunities.

The events will help researchers, research offices, communications, policy and public engagement professionals get a deeper insight into our newly launched Delivery Plan and meet the team from AHRC.

Attendees will also have the chance to hear top tips from industry experts on how to engage key audiences with ground-breaking research and explore how our community can work together to champion the arts and humanities, tackle contemporary issues and generate impact.

The ‘Meet the Arts and Humanities Research Councilevents will run approximately from 10am – 5pm, with an additional evening reception for those who would like to attend. Events will take place at the following locations:

  • Cardiff University – 6 November 2019
  • The University of Manchester – 9 January 2020
  • University of Strathclyde – new date for spring 2020 to be announced soon

There will also be an event in London in spring 2020. Full details will be released and registration for this event will open shortly.

Kristine Zaidi, Assistant Director at AHRC, said: “These events are not only an opportunity for our research community to understand more about our delivery plan, but to collectively explore how we can champion the arts and humanities. We hope to bring together breadth of attendees from across the UK - and across disciplines - to celebrate outstanding work and look at how we can extend the reach and impact of ground-breaking research.”

A full agenda for the day will be released approximately one month before each event.
