AHRC/BBC Radio 3 New Generation Thinkers 2019 information session

July 24, 2018

The Arts Humanities and Research Council (AHRC) and BBC Radio 3 have started their search for the New Generation Thinkers of 2019. The  scheme provides an opportunity for early career researchers to cultivate the skills to communicate their research findings to those outside the academic community.

Cardiff University is holding an information session open to all GW4 institutions on 18th September 2018, 12:00-13.30. It will include an outline of the scheme, as well as a talk from recent attendees.

Each year, up to sixty successful applicants have a chance to develop their programme-making ideas with experienced BBC producers at a series of dedicated workshops and, of these up to ten will become Radio 3’s resident New Generation Thinkers. They will benefit from a unique opportunity to develop their own programmes for BBC Radio 3 and a chance to regularly appear on air.

Dr Des Fitzgerald, a current participant in the scheme, and part of the GW4 Crucible programme in 2017, will also be speaking at the event and on hand to offer advice and valuable insight.

This scheme is open to current PhD/Early Career Researchers (see the AHRC website for eligibility).

The session will take place in Room 0.36, John Percival building, Cardiff University. To attend the session please email risresearchdevelopment@cardiff.ac.uk.
