A new report from the University of Bristol, demonstrating Bristol’s leadership in tackling global challenges through local action, will be presented at the United Nations in New York next week.
In a new study, published in Nature Human Behaviour, researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, the University of Bristol, and Harvard Law School propose interventions to help users distinguish misinformation from fact and promote a more democratic internet with autonomy and transparency.
Four researchers from the University of Bristol have been awarded almost €7M in European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grants in recognition of their ‘excellent science’ and potentially ground-breaking research. The ERC’s Starting Grants support exceptional researchers, between two and seven years from PhD completion, to become fully independent research leaders.
They are particularly intended to enable the researcher to create or strengthen their own research team or programme. The grants are awarded under the 'excellent science' pillar of Horizon 2020, the EU's research and innovation programme.
Established in January 2020 by a generous donation from the Perivoli Foundation, the Perivoli Africa Research Centre (PARC) represents the University of Bristol's cross-disciplinary commitment to championing transformation in research and partnership to advance Africa's achievement of its own aspirations.
Please join us as we convene a diverse community of academics, policy actors and global thought leaders to consider pathways to achieving PARC’s mission to transform research and partnerships between Africa and the global North.
