• Seed funding for larger research bids to support City of Culture-facing research projects

Theme Summary:

Warwick is a principal partner supporting Coventry City of Culture 2021 along with Coventry University and Coventry City Council. The Connecting Cultures GRP has been awarded funds to support the development of collaborative City of Culture-facing research projects. We are keen to hear from anyone seeking up to £5,000 for projects that meet the above aims.
