About the research

SciCulture is a Europe-wide project which brings together social enterprise, scientific research, and the arts with the aim of enhancing participants’ collaborative learning and experiences.

The UoE team is Kerry Chappell and Lindsay Hetherington, and we bring expertise in arts and science education respectively. We are contributing this into the SciCulture short intensive courses which bring these disciplines together through a design research student-centred approach. We are also leading on evaluating the project and developing a toolkit of best practice.

The intensive courses aim to address pressing questions pertinent to participants and the communities they are working in, using transdisciplinary cooperation, coupled with social enterprise. Our SciCulture participants (undergraduates, postgraduates, researchers, educators and entrepreneurs) will take part in short courses and become part of an alumni network of best practice in this field. The network will go on to organise events and activities to engage a variety of public groups with the approach.

Within SciCulture, we are working alongside partners from University of Malta, Science View (Greece), University of Bergen (Norway) and Delft University of Technology (Netherlands).

Project updates are available on our blog.

With the support of the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
