New website launched
Re-designed following extensive consultation with all our key stakeholders over the last year, the new site offers a wide range of improvements including accessibility for disabled users, clearer and more consistent navigation and a home page with access to a range of rich and engaging content, including news items, feature articles, case studies, videos, podcasts and the AHRC twitter feed. Among the other features which users requested are quicker access to open funding calls, improved search functionality and an email form so that users can sign up to regular email alerts.
Sarah Anderson, aResearch Development Manager from Edinburgh University, and one of those who took part in focus groups, said:
It looks great! The images are just what I'd hope to see on the AHRC website. I find it especially useful to have international, strategic themes and knowledge transfer as separate headings. And the twitter feed on the homepage is standard now, I know, but I like it. An enormous improvement!
Another workshop participant, Valerie Lodge, Senior Research and KE Officer at the Arts University College at Bournemouth, said:
I think it looks really great. I love the design, much better than the current site.
Project Manager Daniel Sykes said:
The new site has been made possible by the very many people who have taken time to let us know what they think about our site and what they would like from a new site – through responding to surveys, attending workshops and focus groups, testing early versions, and so on. Our thanks go to all of them. We hope we have delivered a site that reflects the needs of the community we are here to serve.
