Allan Watson awarded £115k RCUK-funded project

Big congratulations to Allan Watson who has just heard that his £115k RCUK-funded KTP project has been approved.

KTPs are very common in STEM subjects making it all the more valuable that Allan has secured a social science KTP. The funding is 80% AHRC and 20% ESRC. This will support an 18 month RA who will be based at the KTP partner – Sentric Music. The aim of the KTP is to examine the importance and role of social media in the music industry, in particular whether there are connections between earnings/royalties and social media presence.
