Leverhulme rejects our conspiracy proposal

30 06 2012

My colleague David Buckingham and were shortlisted for a Leverhulme program grant about conspiracies. We thought we had an exciting, innovative and multidisciplinary proposal, supported by a team of 12 Loughborough colleagues.  Leverhulme thought differently and awarded the grant to a celebrity academic from Cambridge. Sour grapes for us, but we saw it coming when we found out where the competition came from, and when a panel member fell asleep during our interview. Which hopefully says more about him than about our presentation 😉
