The ethos behind our Research Networks (RNs — formerly CRNs) is to provide some initial funding to enable researchers to develop networks across a range of institutions, which may perhaps leads to bigger projects and funding from other sources in the future. The networks should be inclusive rather than insular.

UACES Research Network activities include dedicated research meetings and workshops; participation in larger conferences such as the UACES Annual Conference or other relevant events; contributing to the UACES Newsletter and to pursuing other publishing and dissemination opportunities (journals, books, podcasting, blogging).

Successful networks will receive up to 5,000 GBP spread over a three year period.

We are also offering an additional £1000 of funding (spread over 3 years) which is specifically to support attendance at the UACES conferences in 2019, 2020 and 2021. This can help to cover travel, accommodation and registration fees for members of the network who attend the UACES annual conference. It is not available for any other purpose and cannot be transferred to other parts of the network’s activities. Please note, this additional funding cannot be used to pay for tickets for the UACES conference dinner.
