The Arts and Humanities Research Council invites applications for interdisciplinary research examining ways to meet the threat of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) in the indoor and built environment. Building on previous calls funded by the Research Councils, this call is explicitly intended to facilitate an arts and humanities contribution to the ongoing scientific research in tackling AMR.
Whilst applications for this call will be required to contain significant arts and humanities methodologies, a collaborative approach is encouraged in order to include expertise and insights from as broad a range of subject disciplines as possible. Within this cross-disciplinary approach, a number of key areas have been identified that all projects will be expected to engage with:
- Places, Spaces, Cultures and Practices: Interactions with and within the Indoor and Built Environment
- Pathways and Journeys through the Built Environment and the Dynamics of Change
- Creative, Collaborative and Disruptive Innovation, Experiments and Design in Indoor/ Built Environments
- Reflection, Learning, Data and Valuing Impacts from Changes to the Indoor/ Built Environment
Grants of up to £250,000 will be available for projects with a maximum duration of 36 months.
Deadline for applications: 28th Feb 2017.
