Collaborative research with Higher Education partners
We participate in many collaborative research activities in the Arts & Humanities and in the Social Sciences. We have Independent Research Organisation status with the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC). Below are some examples of our collaborative research activity.
The Library has been successful in applying for a Collaborative Doctoral Partnership (CDP) award from the AHRC. This award covers six doctoral studentships each year for three years, from 2013-2016. Applications will open shortly for university partners for the second cohort, starting in October 2014.
