Culture and Communication priming award presentations
Outcomes from funding awarded by Dr Mark Jenner
Research Theme Champion for Culture and Communication
In June 2016 Mark Jenner, Champion for Culture and Communication, invited applications for priming funds to support short term projects within this theme. As part of the dissemination of the work the lead applicant has been invited to present the outcomes of their project.
The format is a 5-10 minute talk follwed by about 10 to 15 minutes of questions, discussion and suggestions.
The presentations will:
• Explain the overall aims of the research and why it is interesting
• Outline achievements in the activities supported by the Priming Fund
• Describe plans to take the work forward with additional research, further collaborations, and funding applications
