Funding area: Arts & Humanities
Research Networks are designed to create and/or to consolidate collaborative partnerships over a two-year period. ‘Partnerships’ may be defined in a range of ways, and may involve collaboration between colleagues in different disciplines (which may extend into areas beyond the arts and humanities), in different HEIs, and/or in HEIs and Scottish Cultural Institutions.
The award may be used to expand the activities of existing Research Workshops, or to initiate new projects, although evidence of previous successful collaborative work amongst the participants will be an advantage. Under this scheme, adherence to the key principles of the RSE’s Arts & Humanities Awards programme i.e. collaborative research, relevance in the Scottish context, and knowledge exchange, is essential.
The RSE Arts and Humanities awards will open for applications in early June.
The maximum award will be £20,000 per Network, over two years.
Network awards should be carried out over a twenty-four month period and should begin between 1 December and 31 March of the academic year.
