Professor David Deacon, Dean for Loughborough University London said:
Loughborough University London’s participation in the TECHNE Doctoral Training Partnership offers exciting opportunities for aspiring researchers to benefit from our research excellence in design innovation, media, communication and social change. The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is constantly being transformed by cultural and creative innovation, and is the ideal location for researchers to witness the power and significance of the arts and humanities. Participants in this regeneration range from community-based arts initiatives through to global, cultural institutions.

Professor Edward Harcourt, AHRC Director of Research said:
The AHRC is delighted to announce its renewed commitment to the Doctoral Training Partnerships model. Our support for the next generation of arts and humanities researchers is critical to securing the future of the UK arts and humanities sector, which accounts for nearly a third of all UK academic staff, is renowned the world over for its outstanding quality, and which plays a vital part in our higher education ecosystem as a whole. We were extremely pleased with the response to our call, which saw high-quality applications from across the UK from a variety of diverse and innovative consortia, each with a clear strategy and vision for the future support of their doctoral students.
