Where Next



Where Next is an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) initiative to collect innovative ideas that can help shape and influence our work.

We use evidence and insights from the Where Next programme to improve and inform what we do and how we do it.

Why Where Next is important

Submissions are open to everyone, from trusted stakeholders to new and unconventional partners. This will help us to ensure that our future priorities are inclusive, innovative and in touch with the interests and priorities of researchers, the public, industry and government.

We are looking for compelling ideas that:

  • capture the imagination of our stakeholder communities
  • have the potential to develop into thoughtful, cross-cutting research and talent development agendas
  • allow us to bridge recognised gaps in our existing knowledge and research capacity
