LRG 50TH Anniversary Research Fund (application deadline closed 30 November 2016)
In 2017, the LRG celebrates its 50th Anniversary and, as part of our anniversary programme, we created a 50th Anniversary Research Fund. This fund supports a small number of high-quality projects which align strongly with our Research Strategy, the over-arching priority of which is “to advance research that contributes towards just and sustainable relationships between people and landscapes.” More specifically, the LRG 50th Anniversary Research Fund is targeted to support projects dealing with the theme of landscape justice, which is one of the four themes highlighted by our Research Strategy. The Fund supports projects with a clear public benefit, including:
- research into the circumstances in which injustice is generated and sustained in landscape contexts;
- research into injustices that are historically-embedded in the landscape, that are emerging now or that might emerge in the future;
- projects and activities that make use of research in the development and implementation of policies, practices and/or actions that address landscape injustice;
- projects and activities that create opportunities and mechanisms for the generation, dissemination and/or use of knowledge, understanding or insight into landscape justice.
Our priority is projects that include a strong element of collaboration and exchange, and those that transcends disciplines, sectors and/or the boundaries between professional researchers, practitioners and the public. In terms of applicant eligibility, there were no particular restrictions as to discipline, sector or nationality. We welcomed submissions from applicants at any stage in their career seeking support for projects appropriate to their experience.
A total of £20,000 has been allocated to the Fund and applications were invited for an LRG funding contribution of between £1,000 and £10,000. The deadline for submission of applications was Wednesday 30 November 2016. More information about the successful projects and their progress will be posted here and in our eBulletin in due course.
