TSRC has now been informed of the outcome of its bid for further core funding for the Centre under the ESRC’s Centres and Large Grants competition 2014.

We reached the final interview stage, but unfortunately this bid was unsuccessful meaning that ESRC funding for core research activity in the Centre, which commenced in 2008, will come to an end on 31 March 2014.

TSRC will continue to operate after this, and will be reviewing its future actvities in the light of existing commitments and future resources; inevitably this will result in a significant reduction in future research plans and outputs.

We will keep you posted about developments!
