In May/June this year there was a lot of discussion on the Research Themes section of the blog about the shape, scope and structure of the emerging BU research themes. Thank you to everyone who contributed to these discussions – your input to date is hugely appreciated.
Based on the feedback and comments received it is proposed to reduce the number of themes from 10 to 8, with the themes of Ageing and Learning and Public Engagement becoming part the other 8 themes.
Summaries of the 10 themes, including all of the comments received, are available here:
- Creative & Digital Economy
- Culture and Society
- Entrepreneurship and Economic Growth
- Environmental Change & Biodiversity
- Green Economy and Sustainability
- Health and Wellbeing
- Learning and public engagement
- Leisure and Recreation
- Technology & Design
Your research themes need you! – we are now looking for a volunteer(s) for each theme to be responsible for coordinating the discussions and developing a definitive description of the theme by early September.
If you are interested in leading one of the themes please could you let me know by email as soon as possible.
