Resonate Festival - Invention Stitch in Time

Stitch In Time is a collaborative project between Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) at the University of Warwick and local primary schools for Coventry UK City of Culture 2021.

On Tuesday 1 June 2021 we hosted one of the very first events for Resonate Festival, 'Stitch in Time' at Herbert Art Gallery museum for the Month of Invention, coordinated by the Innovative Manufacturing and Future Materials GRP. The aim of this event was to inspire primary school children and their families from the local community about the history of Coventry's textiles, linking this to modern day technology and programming skills that are really important for children to learn.

New fund for research collaboration with Monash University

The Monash Warwick Alliance welcomes expressions of interest in the Alliance Co-Fund. Designed to empower Monash and Warwick researchers to develop strong and competitive joint external funding applications, the Co-Fund provides a contribution towards international research costs, incurred due to collaboration within the Alliance. The Co-Fund can be requested in support of a variety of external funding opportunities including challenge-led calls and responsive mode grants, offered by both domestic or international funders.

Expressions of Interest will be accepted and evaluated on a rolling basis, subject to availability of funds. The outcome of the Expressions of Interest will typically be communicated within two to four weeks of receipt by the Alliance Project Team.
