CEELBAS awarded new development funding by AHRC and British Academy


CEELBAS has recently been awarded new funding by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the British Academy (BA) to support its development of language-based area studies.

The award - over £150k per annum, initially for two years - will enable CEELBAS, in collaboration with the other LBAS Centres, to build on the achievements and impacts of the LBAS Initiative in 2006-2011, with a particular focus on knowledge exchange and engagement with non-academic communities. The funding is awarded within the framework of the AHRC's Delivery Plan 2011-15 and the British Academy's Languages and Quantitative Skills (L&QS) Programme, and will be used to support Knowledge Exchange Partnerships and Internships; Research Workshops and International Research Exchanges; Postgraduate Research Training and Language Development Projects. Further details of planned events and initiatives will be posted on the CEELBAS website in the coming months.
