The University has an excellent record of collaborations and partnerships between the sciences and the arts. This has included teaching between arts, humanities and science students, research projects between colleagues or with outside organisations and large-scale public engagement events.

In academic year 2014-15 the University is seeking to support new initiatives that develop innovation within this field. We believe there is teaching, research and engagement/impact benefits to these collaborations – and believe arts/science projects can contribute in creative ways to our social responsibility agenda. Arts/science projects and events planned as part of this scheme for 2014/2015 will be preparing the way for public engagement events planned as part of the European City of Science 2016.

Full details and an application form can be found here and applications are encouraged from all areas of the University.

The deadline in 30 September 2014.
