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, as well as help you to think about the research project you might like to explore. We will also guide you through the application process, before expressions of interest open on 18 October.
We are running the same event at two times on the 12 October. To book on to the morning session click here.

What are the benefits of taking part in Collaborate?
