We are pleased to invite ManMet colleagues to a half-day visit by Gary Grubb, Associate Director at the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC).

Gary’s remit includes interdisciplinary and cross-Council research and his current area of focus is AHRC’s ‘global activities’ including the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) which he will be concentrating on for this visit.

The event is open to all researchers interested in UKRI’s Global Challenges work but especially those working within the AHRC’s arts and humanities remit.

Date: Friday 10th January 2020

10 -11am Gary Grubb presentation on ‘AHRC’s global activities’
This will focus on AHRC’s interests and opportunities in GCRF and particularly their take on the role of arts and humanities research within the GCRF programme.
Gary will also range into broader UKRI GCRF / ODA activities and talk about research policy issues in this space that cut across Councils / UKRI.

11 – 11:15 Break

11:15 – 12:15 ManMet Showcase.
4x 15 mins presentations from our academics sharing their GCRF related research

12:15 – 1pm Q&A
A panel consisting of Gary Grubb, Professor Kate Pahl and other ManMet staff with GCRF experience (e.g. reviewers and panel members and reviewers) will discuss audience questions.
This is a two-way dialogue and an opportunity for participants give feedback and share ideas with Gary to take back to the AHRC/UKRI.
Topics could include:

  • Practical issues such as equitable partnerships and ethics
  • Areas of future focus
  • How arts and humanities research fits within interdisciplinary work in this area
  • Colleagues experiences of being involved in GCRF research
