Leave a comment


University Alliance  have joined up with the British Academy and host universities to explore the topics of interdisciplinary and international research through two events aimed at academics and research managers. The first will be held in Bristol on the 9th November and will include focus on interdisciplinary research while the second event will be held in Salford on the 7th December and will explore international research.

Both events will:

  • highlight British Academy funding opportunities available for researchers
  • explore policy and structural problems around international or interdisciplinary research and share best practice on how these can be overcome
  • share best practice between researchers working on either interdisciplinary and international projects.

These events will be a great opportunity for colleagues from our institutions to get to meet British Academy colleagues and hear about the funding opportunities and support available. They will also include research showcases and presentations from active researchers and Academy award holders from the surrounding regions (including MMU academics).

University of the West of England, Bristol – 9th November

University of Salford – 7th December

Please note that places are limited on a first come first serve basis. As the events will both cover similar territory, please limit attendance to one event.
