Funded research projects
We have a strong track record of securing external research funding from major research councils and established awarding bodies. This funding supports the development of collaborative projects that address both local and global research challenges. We also collaborate on interdisciplinary projects funded externally and by the University.
Live Experiential And Digital Diversification: Nottingham
This project will work with local businesses to use immersive technologies and techniques to deliver exciting new experiences for customers, visitors and audiences. The University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University are combining their expertise in these areas and working with local businesses to:
- introduce them to the technologies
- help develop viable products
This will help businesses maximise potential and profit in a post-pandemic economy. At the University of Nottingham this project is an interdisciplinary research project between the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Science that will be drawing on the sector-leading expertise of our academics from across the University.

Interactional Variation Online: Harnessing digital technologies in the digital humanities to analyse online discourse in different workplace contexts
Working with colleagues from Cardiff University, Mary Immaculate College, Swansea University, The University of Nottingham, University College Dublin, and University of Aberdeen, this AHRC/IRC funded project first aims to examine virtual workplace communication to gain depth of insight into the potential barriers to effective communication. Our second aim is to propose the next generation of frameworks for analysing online discourse and will make these frameworks available to all arts and humanities research and end user communities. This will lead to a step change in our ability to develop equality of access in online communication. The project team received £390,000 from AHRC and €270,000 from IRC for this project, to be undertaken from 2021-24.
