UCL is one of the institutions participating in the AHRC SMKE project led by the University of Cambridge.
This is a collaborative project that aims to give research students and early career researchers in the Arts and Humanities opportunities for knowledge exchange with social media practitioners in academia, museums, archives, libraries, and the voluntary sector.
The call for proposals is now out and the deadline is 25 June 2012.
The SMKE Scholarship scheme will provide funding of up to £1,000 for ten knowledge exchange projects to run in academic year 2012-3. Applicants must be postgraduate students or early career researchers in the Arts and Humanities in any of the five participating institutions.
The UCL theme is Social Media and the Museum although applicants from UCL are not restricted to that theme. Full details including a link to the online application system are available on the project website.
