These are all the projects awarded by ISSR Grants in 2021. Below are the recipients.
This project assesses the opportunities and threats that rapidly evolving landscapes, and natural resources, will bring to the people and businesses of three glacierised Cordilleras of the Peruvian Andes.
Groundwater resources face increasing pressure from consumption and pollution. This project developed methods and tools for integrated groundwater management and monitoring in Europe.
Delta communities are particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts. This project looked at the links between ecosystem services, human health and wellbeing and projected how these might evolve over the coming decades in the light of varying policy contexts.
Following the consideration of applications for Interdisciplinary Incubator Grant funding, we are delighted to announce the successful recipients.
Art at the Start: Visualising the benefits of early art making
Funding will go towards bringing multidisciplinary experts together to create and develop an illustrated infographic film, sharing what we have learned through our research about the benefits of art making from a very young age.
Digital health, healthcare service design and marginalization
Funds will support a scoping review into helping health and social care commissioners, providers and practitioners to consider how digital technology initiatives might negatively impact on service users from marginalized groups, particularly the potential for unintended consequences, and how these impacts can be minimised.
Dundee Just Transition Hub
Funds will support a short term project to lay the foundations for the launch of a Dundee Just Transitions network. It's main objective to promote and develop true interdisciplinary research and teaching about just transitions and to serve as a focal point for academics across social sciences and beyond. The project will run a number of seminars and workshops to be able to launch the network in the coming months.
Embodying mothering in the neonatal intensive care unit: creative storytelling project
The aim of the project is to generate data using an approach to dialogical storytelling involving a series of online creative workshops, in-depth interviews with mothers of preterm infants, leading to an exhibition and future grant application.
Stigma of Smell: The co-evolution of social exclusion and the legitimacy of the deodorant industry
The funding will support the creation of a comprehensive data set with the involvement of an archival service for research, leading to a peer-review journal. It is anticipated this will lay the foundation for larger research grant applications and presenting full findings at the Academy of Marketing 2022 conference. The research aims to analyse advertisements from the early days of the deodorant industry to the present to understand how social exclusion by means of stigmatisation takes shape in tandem with social inclusion, or de-stigmatisation.
