What We Do

We are a group exploring issues focused on the human mind, driven by our members’ research interests. We provide support to our members by:

  • providing a forum for interdisciplinary discussion.
  • running a mailing list disseminating information of interest to members.
  • providing appropriate cross-disciplinary training for early career researchers.
  • hosting an annual summer seminar series.
  • supporting grant applications across disciplinary boundaries.

Anyone interested in joining the mailing list should contact Emma Borg.

Early career researchers working on relevant interdisciplinary issues are an integral part of the Centre and we aim to provide appropriate cross-disciplinary supervision and support, giving students the opportunity to learn about areas outside their specialisation. By conducting research with members of the Centre which introduces them to new ideas and techniques, graduate students will broaden their understanding of the disciplines which contribute to the study of Cognitive Science.

Anyone considering submitting a research grant which might benefit from an interdisciplinary component is encouraged to contact the Directors (Emma Borg and Nat Hansen) to discuss what support RCCR might be able to offer.

Past support for grant applications has included individualised grant application workshops, the use of the RCCR seminar series or conference platforms to run grant-based events, and small seed funding for exploratory work. Past RCCR-affiliated grants have included awards from the Leverhulme Trust, the British Academy, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, Stanford University, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, and the John Templeton Foundation. A full list of past awards which have benefited from RCCR support is available below.
