Lorna Philip to commence research as part of the UK and Ireland Rural Futures Network

The UK and Ireland Rural Futures Network, funded by the ESRC and the Irish Research Council,  brings together academics from a range of disciplines, policy makers and rural professionals from across the UK and the Republic of Ireland to develop a future research agenda and reframe future rural policy for the changing demands on rural space expected post-Brexit and post-Covid-19.  Lorna Philip will co-lead one of the three workstreams, socio-political contexts, and will host a knowledge exchange visitor from another nation within the network during the lifetime of the award.
