Our School of Arts and Creative Industries’ Emily Alder and Aleksandar Kocic will receive Royal Society of Edinburgh funding for researchers whose work benefits individuals, communities and broader society.

They are among 48 exceptional researchers from 10 Scottish universities awarded a total of £836,000 in the RSE Research Awards programme.

With an average grant value of £17,000, various disciplines have been supported, including science, art, humanities, social science, and multidisciplinary projects. The research projects also support international collaboration between researchers in Scotland and those in Brazil, Indonesia, and the United States.

The wider programme will see researchers work on a diverse range of projects, from transforming autism research and examining harassment in the UK music industry to confronting customer abuse during the Covid-19 crisis and business incubators' role in scaling up women-led start-ups.

Launched in spring 2021, the revised RSE Research Awards programme runs twice a year, in spring and autumn. The funding programme aims to support Scotland's academic researchers, nurture promising talent, stimulate research in Scotland, and promote international collaboration, which will be of lasting benefit to the individuals and communities concerned and to broader society.

Anne Anderson, Chair of the RSE Research Awards Committee, Royal Society of Edinburgh, said, “The RSE Research Awards programme is vital for sustaining the knowledge and talent pipeline in our vibrant research and innovation sector across the length and breadth of Scotland. Funding enables awardees to deepen their research into significant global challenges, to support career development, and to make significant benefits to society and the economy. The RSE sends its congratulations to each of the award winners and wishes them good fortune in the conduct and outcomes of their research.”
