ESRC IAA Impact Lab: Does your research need some poetry*?

 (*other creative forms are available, e.g. film, theatre, novels or short stories!)

Researchers who conduct social science research (according to the ESRC definition) are invited to submit expressions of interest for participation in a forthcoming Impact Lab facilitated by Professor Ruth Gilligan and Dr Dan Vyleta from the Department of Film and Creative Writing, and Professor Nicola Gale from the College of Social Sciences.

The Impact Lab seeks to bring together social scientists with colleagues from across the Department of Film and Creative Writing (who as well as being a team of award-winning film-makers, poets, novelists, and short story writers, conduct critical and applied research on creative arts practice, e.g. craft, translation, philosophy, performance). The aim of the Lab is to develop new interdisciplinary ways of working and new methods for developing impact in collaboration with external organisations. Groups formed at the Impact Lab will receive a small budget funded through the University of Birmingham’s ESRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) to deliver impact activity after the Lab, and will be supported to develop proposals for further interdisciplinary research or impact projects.

Colleagues interested in attending the impact lab should complete an Expression of Interest by Friday 18 March 2022. Further details on the Expression of Interest process can be found on the ESRC IAA intranet pages.
