University Alliance/British Academy International Research Event @ University of Salford

5 October 2016

We are pleased to announce details of a forthcoming joint University Alliance/British Academy event at the university, which will address issues of international research in the humanities and social sciences. Academic staff with an interest in this area are encouraged to register to secure their place.


The University Alliance have joined up with the British Academy and the University of Salford to explore the topic of international research in the humanities and social sciences through an event aimed at academics and research managers. The event will be held at the university on 7th December 2016.

The event will:

  • highlight British Academy funding opportunities available for researchers
  • explore policy and structural problems around international research and share best practice on how these can be overcome
  • share best practice between researchers working on international projects.

This event will be a great opportunity for colleagues from both Salford and other University Alliance institutions to get to meet British Academy colleagues and hear about the funding opportunities and support available. The event will also include research showcases and presentations from active researchers and Academy award holders from across the North West.
