Swansea University is very excited to announce that the UKRI’s Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) is inviting proposals to the Green Transition Ecosystem (GTE) funding call, part of their Future Observatory: Design the Green Transition programme.

The AHRC are coming to Swansea University on 18th November to present their Green Transition Ecosystems programme. This event will provide an opportunity for researchers in Wales to meet the funders and learn more about the interdisciplinary design research scheme, as well as network with other colleagues.

Green Transition Ecosystems are large scale projects that focus on translating the best design-led research into real-world benefits. GTEs will address distinct challenges posed by the climate crisis, including but not limited to realising Net Zero goals.

This event will enable you to hear more about GTEs and how they are situated within the wider Future Observatory: Design the Green Transition programme, hear about other opportunities outside of the programme and ask questions to a panel of AHRC and FO representatives.
