ISR Knowledge Exchange:

ISR is committed to the development of a sustainable and vibrant research culture at Edge Hill University, acting as an inter-disciplinary, cross-departmental hub. This hub co-ordinates and supports research, bringing together academics, practitioners and the wider public through a range of seminars, workshops and lectures, and promotes practitioner and community engagement through knowledge exchange and impact.  Here are some of the recent KE events:

  • June 2021 — Communicating Health Messages and Risks to Minority Groups in the Wirral
  • May 2021 — Re-imagining shared, sustainable urban futures: supporting asylum seekers and refugees during COVID-19 in Liverpool

ISR Research Funding Awards (ISRA)

Annually ISR allocates small funding awards (ISRA) to Edge Hill University academic staff for new research projects that are smaller and more agile in nature and which pertain to the overall theme of social responsibility.  This year’s awards went to:

  • Creating Sustainable Futures – read more.
  • The association dynamics between mental, physical wellbeing, and the level of physical activity – read more.
  • Wellbeing, Resilience and Stressors Affecting Homeless Families in UK and Ireland: Understanding Experiences of Covid-19 and Implications for Policy – read more.
