New research asks how the police can use City of Culture to engage the public, whilst also managing crime and protecting event attendees. The project explores how police partnerships around arts and culture can support crime reduction and protect vulnerable people.
On 23 March, the Government published its inaugural Knowledge Exchange Framework (KEF) report, and we are delighted that Warwick has been placed in the top 10% of English higher education institutes for “Public and community engagement”, and the top 20% for “Working with business.”
The University’s Research Development Fund, which was temporarily withdrawn during 2020-2021, has now been reinstated for the 2021/22 academic year.
This will provide pump-priming support for new research initiatives and/or future external funding applications, with approved projects commencing from 01 August 2021.
