I was at the British Academy in London on Monday to take part in the first meeting of the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s new Connected Communities Strategic Advisory Group. The Connected Communities programme started in 2009 and has now funded more than 250 projects. It is a cross-council programme, channelling funds from all the UK Research Councils. Over 400 different project partners have been named in applications to date. The Strategic Advisory Group comprises a mixture of academics, voluntary and community sector organisations, civil servants (from the Department for Communities and Local Government and the Welsh Government Communities First programme) and commercial partners including BT. On Monday we discussed plans for an international Connected Communities conference in 2014 and a research development workshop towards the end of 2013. See: www.connected-communities.org
