CREATe Research Blog Series & Book

By 6 November 2017No Comments

CREATe is delighted to launch a new series of reflective blog posts about CREATe-funded research projects. With our first phase wrapping up and looking towards the future, it is an appropriate time to revisit and reflect upon the range of projects in which our researchers have been involved. We hope that the series will showcase the value, legacy and impact of CREATe research as well as making our research findings relatable to the general public. The blog posts are grouped under six themes, related to our original themes, they are:

The posts will be compiled  as a ‘blog book’, published in 2018, which will include introductions to each of the themes by guest editors. From Wednesday 8th November until April 2018, we will be posting these blog posts here two to three times per week, showcasing the impressive breadth of our research across over 50 projects.
