New dates confirmed for the 2020 'Meet the AHRC' event series

Date: 02/03/2020

Due to the current coronavirus outbreak and given the changing nature of this situation, we have taken the decision to postpone the Meet the AHRC events due to take place in London (5 May) and Glasgow (2 June).

We are not cancelling our planned engagement programme but are looking to reschedule when government advice supports the resumption of events of this kind.

There are many ways you can continue to interact with the AHRC via our social and digital channels. You can also contact the engagement team with any specific queries about this event series at engage@ahrc.ukri.org  

Further information about the impact of coronavirus on UKRI and UKRI supported research, can be found on the UKRI website.

We thank you for your understanding and we look forward to meeting you at a future event.

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) has confirmed two new dates for the next ‘Meet the AHRC’ events, taking place this year. The AHRC has been touring the UK with a series of free one-day events packed with panel sessions, speakers and networking opportunities. Events have already taken place at Cardiff University (6 November 2019) and The University of Manchester (9 January 2020). The final two events will take place at the following locations:

  • The National Gallery, London – 5 May 2020
  • University of Strathclyde, Glasgow – 2 June 2020

The events will help researchers, research offices, communications, policy and public engagement professionals develop a deeper insight into AHRC’s Delivery Plan and direction of travel, learn about current and upcoming funding opportunities as well as 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 – 4pm.

Kristine Zaidi, Associate 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 a 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 to delegates approximately one month before each event.
