Immersive Experiences Research:
Briefing Event - Manchester
by AHRC and EPSRC
Fri 7 July 2017, 10:00 – 14:00

The call

The AHRC and EPSRC Immersive Research Development Partnerships call is 
seeking proposals for grants for up to £75K to support the development 
of early stage research partnerships that can explore the creation of 
new immersive experiences addressing the call’s three key themes: 
Memory, Place, Performance.

This is a multidisciplinary research call with up to £2M available to 
support collaborations between the Arts and Humanities and other 
disciplines from Psychology to Engineering and between researchers, 
creative practitioners and businesses.

Collaborations must address the call themes with creative practice 
research, be led-by academic researchers and include industrial partners 
that can demonstrate domain knowledge or provide user insight or access.
The aim is to support new interdisciplinary research that has the 
potential to develop into larger scale projects suitable for future 
funding. This call will support partnership building, concept formation 
and prototyping projects of 6-9 months duration.

About the Briefing Event

This Immersive Experiences: Briefing Event is part of a programme of 
national outreach and engagement activities, which have been organised 
by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to support the new 
AHRC and Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) call 
for Immersive Experiences Research Development Partnerships.

The event will provide delegates with the background and detailed 
information about the call. There will also be opportunities to explore 
the call themes, as well as meet and network with potential partners and 
the AHRC Creative Economy Programme team.
