Research Excellence Awards success for Humanities and Social Sciences academics
Friday, 17 March 2017
Numerous academics in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences have been awarded Research Excellence Awards in light of the ground breaking research they have undertaken.
The awards are part of Oxford Brookes’ commitment to supporting research-active academics.
The winners of the inaugural Research Excellence Awards from the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences were:
Department of English and Modern Languages
Dr Katharine Craik
Dr Tatiana Kontou
Dr James Hawes
Dr Nicole Pohl
School of History, Philosophy and Culture
Department of Social Sciences
Dr Giuseppe Donati
Professor John Gold
The scheme is funded through the central research fund and is intended to provide enhanced support for research excellence, complementing quality-related funding at faculty and department level. Researchers were able to apply for one of two levels of award, worth either £10,000 or £20,000. These awards act as a contribution towards research leave or the support of a research assistant.
The university will continue the scheme annually as part of Oxford Brookes’ investment in research excellence and in supporting the aims of the recently revised Research and Knowledge Exchange Strategy 2016-2020.
