This project is expected to last three months, during Michaelmas term, to establish priorities for further development through 2022/23 and into future bids for major projects and an ESRC Centre / Leverhulme Centre / Leverhulme CDT bid (to be decided during development project and beyond).As a short term development project it will included three core events (one per month in Michaelmas Term)that is part of a longer term plan for advancing interdisciplinary research in this area within Durham.
Each event will be led by/organised by a different sub-group from the list of participants and will include lead academics from at least two departments, plus at least one PGR student.
The activities will act as a catalyst within longer-term, larger-scale plans to build towards substantial funding bids that bring together academic researchers, nonacademic partners, and experts by experience in the area of neurodiversity and specifically highlighting autism / the autistic community. This project will enable
With regards to #3 funding targets such as a ESRC Centre, Leverhulme Centre or Leverhulme CDT bid (building on the PIs profile as DTP Director) have been identified.
The current project is part of the gradual ‘building-up’ exercise to develop, refine, and strengthen the competitive position for such schemes.
