The Open Psychology Research Centre (OPRC) has published an annual review on its third year (2022-2023). During this year, staff in the School of Psychology and Counselling achieved their best performance in grant capture in many years. The School generated over £1.5 million in research funding, with projects funded by EU Horizon 2020, British Academy, UK Innovation, NIHR, ESRC, Wellcome, Department of Transport and the British Psychological Society.
The Centre supported multiple research projects across the school's three research strands: Culture and Social Psychology (CUSP), the Forensic Cognition Research Group (FCRG) and Psychology of Health and Well-Being (PHEW). We disbursed seed-funding for projects, training activities, support for publications and impact activity and provided administrative and financial support for the ongoing meetings of the three research strands.
The ColLab was developed to allow researchers and students in the School to collaborate around psychological research. The ColLab has enrolled 50 researchers and over 1300 student volunteer participants to date. It also now serves as these students' portal to live research talks from research-active staff.
Finally, the OPRC saw structural changes as its management board merged to form the School Research Committee. The Annual Review provides an overview of these and other Centre activities during the 2022-2023 year, whilst media highlights are offered through the OPRC website, the School of Psychology & Counselling website, and School's Wordpress.
