ICT in Arts and Humanities Research

Welcome to the webpages of the AHRC's ICT (Information and Communication Technology) in Arts and Humanities Research Programme.

Launched by the AHRC in October 2003, now with funding of 3.8m, this strategic programme will run until September 2008. Its aim is to develop, promote and monitor the AHRC's ICT strategy, and to build capacity nation-wide in the use of ICT for arts and humanities research, in particular by funding a range of projects and services that will complement those already funded by the AHRC and other national bodies.

AHRC-EPSRC-JISC Arts and Humanities e-Science Initiative

As part of this initiative, a joint AHRC-EPSRC-JISC call for bids has now been issued, to include e-Science Research Grants to a total value of 2m, and six 4-year e-Science postgraduate studentships. An Information Meeting was held on 8 September to answer questions from prospective applicants. For up-to-date information from this meeting click here or use the e-Science Research Grants tab on the left.
