Following the success of the COVID Conversations series earlier this year, a series of online Innovation Conversations are being livestreamed throughout September 2020, as part of the celebrations of this year’s Vice-Chancellor’s Innovation Awards.
This series will offer the chance to hear more from each of the category winners, as well as to ask questions about their award-winning research, before culminating in a panel discussion event hosted by Professor Chas Bountra, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Innovation, on 7 October 2020.
The series continues on Wednesday 23 September 2020 with Winner of the Building Capacity category, Professor Jonathan Prag who will discuss his project ‘I.Sicily and enabling access to ancient Sicilian inscriptions’.
Professor Prag has been studying the history of ancient Sicily for twenty years. Over that time he has developed a digital, online, open access corpus (I.Sicily) as a research tool and the foundation for an innovative series of collaborations to make the material accessible to a much wider public.
