Workshop Awards

Workshop awards, run over one year, are designed to encourage collaborative investigation into a research proposition in the arts and humanities that is at an early stage of its development. This funding encourages and supports a range of seminars, colloquia, workshops, lectures and visits from distinguished scholars/practitioners to Scotland to advance the exploration of the topic, theme or issue. Collaborations may be interdisciplinary and/or international, incorporating higher education and cultural institutions. Projects are collaborative; resonate with Scottish culture and society by delivering a social or economic impact; and include plans for dissemination which address both a traditional academic audience and the wider public.

"The Research Workshops scheme was extremely beneficial for me as an early career researcher on a fixed-term contract as I was able to act as PI on a project I had developed and see it through to completion. I then went on to secure a Lectureship"
