Are you an academic researcher based in the UK? Interested in applying to the Collaborate fund? Then this event could be for you!

Join us to find out more about this new fund to support the development of collaborative research projects between the cultural sector and academic researchers.

Successful projects will contribute to deeper understanding of the differences culture makes to people’s lives and to the range of research methodologies used to explore cultural value.

This event will provide more information about the fund and guide you through the application process. Expressions of interest are open between 6 December 2021 and 26 January 2022.

What are the benefits of taking part in Collaborate?

  • To co-develop a collaborative research project to more deeply understand an area of cultural value.
  • The research could form the basis of future research publications, be cited as impact activity for future REF case studies or be the foundation for further external funding in the future.
  • You’ll have access to a cohort of peers, learning resources and the chance to develop skills in research leadership and new ways to communicate research.
  • Network with some of the UK’s leading arts and cultural organisations to generate shared research ideas.

What is the eligibility?

We welcome expressions of interest from individual academic researchers or research teams from any discipline. You must have a PhD at the time of application and currently be working at a UK based university or higher education institution.
