Environmental Spaces and the Feel-Good Factor
New Publication from AHRC
AHRC has produced a new leaflet highlighting the contribution of the Arts and Humanities to research on the environment.
The Global Challenges Research Fund is a 5-year £1.5Bn fund led by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) which operates across a number of delivery partners, including the UK Research Councils, UK Higher Education Funding bodies, the Academy of Medical Sciences, Royal Society, British Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering and UK Space Agency.
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) are looking to appoint GCRF Challenge Leaders.
We are now recruiting for the Contributor Group on the second demystifying publication which will discuss the contested and complex concept of ‘health’ reflecting on the many different definitions and conceptualisations.
A new funding opportunity is now available for researchers to develop Natural Capital Synthesis Reports.
The report from the Valuing Nature workshop "Naturally Healthy" is now available: The cost-effectiveness of addressing public health priorities through improved access to the natural outdoors.
Read the background to the workshop and download the report here.
The research councils are pleased to announce the cross-disciplinary mental health network plus call.
The aim of the call is to encourage the creation of multi-disciplinary networks that cross the remit boundaries of the research councils. These networks will address important mental health research questions that require an innovative, cross-disciplinary approach to accelerate progress; to build cross-disciplinary research capacity in the field; and to strengthen the UK mental health research base.
The Natural Capital Committee (NCC) has recently published a report Advice to Government on the 25 Year Environment Plan which sets out the NCC advice to government on the development and implementation of the 25 year environment plan.
It includes the NCC thoughts on what the plan should aim to achieve, how it will do that and what success will look like.
