NESTA award

Dr Chrissie Rogers, Research Institute for Life Course Studies and the School of Criminology, Education, Sociology and Social Work, has won a Crucible 2008 award from NESTA: the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts.

The Crucible programme for early-stage career researchers has enabled Chrissie to attend their prestigious seminar series aimed at facilitating people from different disciplines to collaborate and 'think outside the box'. By bringing together researchers in this way, the expectation is that new collaborations will emerge along with further funding opportunities from NESTA.

Chrissie, who has had her first book reviewed as 'exceptional sociological work...' in Qualitative Sociology Review (2007, 3 [3]), recently attended the first of the weekend seminars at New Hall Cambridge. This included a day at the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology and an evening reception and dinner in London. Further weekend meetings are scheduled for July and September.
