Research to the real world
28 June, 9.45am – 3.00pm, Manchester
Are you a PGR? Could you find use for a £300 cash injection?
Could your research benefit communities in Greater Manchester or the North-West Region? Is all you need a cash injection to make this dream a reality? If so Manchester needs you.
We’re asking students to film a short pitch of how his or her research could be applied to produce positive, social impact in Manchester. The videos will go online and the four most popular ideas will receive a £300 grant to develop research or public engagement activity as part of CityCampMCR in September
The event will include skills-based workshops on Presentations, Media and Networking and the following keynote speakers:
- Vincent Walsh, Epoch 6
- Professor Helen Gunter, School of Education, The University of Manchester,
- Dr Melanie Horton, MMU

Practice as Research Consortium North West (PARC NW) Carnival
6-7 July, Manchester
The Practice as Research Consortium North West (PARC NW) invites postgraduate research degree students, their supervisors and project partners to share experiences and exchange knowledge in this free, AHRC funded regional research training programme in the creative arts and industries.
PARC NW’s Carnival event will be hosted by MIRIAD at Manchester Metropolitan University on the 6th and 7th July 2011. The two day programme presents a range of keynote speakers drawn from across the creative industries (including academia, practice, public organisations and commercial ventures), all of whom explore differing elements of practice as research in their own work. Surrounding these keynotes will be presentations, exhibitions, performances, screenings and critical conversations that showcase the work of practice as research students from the region and beyond. Further opportunities for delegates to expand their knowledge, skills and contacts will be provided by Vitae, a support organisation for researchers working in the UK and through the work of Citycamp Manchester, a network organisation that aims to share ideas, explore challenges and join-up resources to develop a more sustainable future in Greater Manchester.
