The Brigstow Institute brings researchers from different disciplines together with a range of partners across the city and beyond to experiment in new ways of living and being. 

Brigstow Awards

We are delighted to announce our the research projects that have been awarded Brigstow Institute Seedcorn Funding in our 2022 funding call.

Tim Cole, Director of Brigstow Institute says 'The 2022 cohort of Brigstow seedcorn projects continue the tradition of drawing on interdisciplinary and co-produced ways of working to ask how we can live well in the 21st century. What is particularly striking about this year's cohort is the focus of many of the project teams on the body, as well as thinking about the relationship between humans and the more than human world of animals and plants. At Brigstow we love this moment of anticipation as the teams begin working together and we wait to see what they will discover!'

Below you can see an overview of the newly awarded cohort, or you can visit our full Seedcorn 2022 announcement to find out more about the aims and methods of the funded interdisciplinary research projects.
