Grant Success

Major AHRC-GCRF grant success for Rising from the Depths project

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) have just announced five major new interdisciplinary networks that will be based at universities across the UK using more than £9m from the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).

The 5 networks will run from October 2017 for up to 4 years, and will showcase the distinctive contribution that arts and humanities research can bring to development in low and middle income countries.

The Rising from the Depths Network has won £2 million for a 4 year project (2017-21) which aims to help East African communities better understand and benefit from marine cultural heritage.
