The latest round of awards for collaborative research projects contributing to Coventry City of Culture have just been announced. Now in their third year, these collaborative projects are jointly funded between Coventry University and the University of Warwick, and have been granted funding of up to £2,000 for projects to partner with a Coventry-based organisation to undertake locally impactful research that invites the general public to participate. The Partnership’s two previous calls have funded 26 innovative and inclusive projects, and continue to build upon other initiatives such as the Warwick Commission on the Future of Cultural Value, and Coventry City Council’s Cultural Strategy.
