Community Research Awards

​The Vice-Chancellor’s Community Research Awards scheme has been postponed for this year and will not be running 2013-14.

The Vice-Chancellor's Community Research Awards scheme has been running for 5 years and it is timely therefore to pause and review, to take stock of just what it has achieved, and spend some time to identify what the significant outcomes have been (both direct and indirect, that perhaps have not yet been clearly articulated) from both an internal and external stakeholder perspective. 

This will naturally take some time to do, but will then enable the University to take the Vice-Chancellor's Community Research Awards Scheme to a whole new level in 2014/15, subject to funding being confirmed for this initiative, and potentially connect with the Festival of Research which may run again in March 2015 linked with National Science & Engineering Week (again subject to confirmation).


The Vice-Chancellor's Community Research Awards are designed to connect the University's world class researchers with our local community, and enable research into questions of importance to community groups.
