The Arts and Humanities Research Council(UK)

The Arts and Humanities Research Council [AHRC] supports world-class research that furthers our understanding of human culture and creativity.
From ancient history and heritage science to modern dance and digital content.
Research into these subjects helps us to interpret our experiences, probe our identities, interrogate our cultural assumptions and understand our historical, social, economic and political context. It adds to the economic success of the UK, through its contributions to the knowledge economy and innovation agenda. The research we fund can lead to improvements in social and intellectual capital, community identity, learning skills, technological evolution and the quality of life of the nation.
