  • Voices of the University: To mark Warwick’s 50th anniversary, we carried out an ambitious oral history project to capture the voices of those who have studied, worked and lived near the University since its creation in 1965. This three-year project has generated interviews from over 250 current and former staff, students and local residents on a wide range of topics relating to the university’s history.
  • Speculative Lunches: A forum for an informal discussion of research ideas at an early stage of formulation, Speculative Meetings should be open to staff as well as postdoctoral fellows and postgraduate students in addition to cross-sector experts as appropriate. These types of meetings are now supported through New Ideas Development Awards.
  • Public Engagement: Funding academics at Warwick to deliver research outputs to the public that arise from past and/or on-going research whereby such activity would not otherwise be possible. These types of activities are now supported through the Research Impact Development Awards.
  • Incubation Awards: Fostering interesting collaborations and building towards major projects, developing research and events. These types of activities are now supported through Grants & Fellowship Development Awards.
