AHRC Annual Report published today

Date: 12/07/2013

The AHRC’s Annual Report and Accounts 2012-13 have been published today. Laid before Parliament yesterday (11 July), the publication outlines the AHRC’s achievements over the last year including the launch of the AHRC Strategy 2013-18, the continued development of the Connected Communities programme, including its first showcase event in London in March, the launch of CREATe, the RCUK Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy, a new collaboration with the Institute for Government to train early career researchers in engaging with policymakers and the continued success of the New Generation Thinkers scheme, run by the AHRC with Radio 3.

Reflecting on the past year, Professor Rick Rylance, Chief Executive of the AHRC, writes: “Many of the initiatives discussed are eye-catching and, we believe, of significance for the development of arts

and humanities research into the future. But the core of our work lies, as ever, in the talents of the researchers we fund, and we invest the bulk of our funding in supporting and developing their work.” He concludes: “This year we have looked positively to the future: in a literal sense in devising

our new Strategy for 2013–2018, The Human World: The Arts and Humanities for Our Times. But also in a general sense in reflecting on the ways in which arts and humanities research is changing and on what it can and will deliver to sustain a culture of creativity and open enquiry.”

In his Chairman’s Foreword, Professor Sir Alan Wilson writes: “What has been achieved this year has

involved much very hard work. As ever, I would like to thank my colleagues on the Council, members of our Advisory Board and Peer Review College, and the staff of the Council. Much has been achieved, and there is much to look forward to.”
