As the director of the Arché Philosophical Research Centre, I worked hard to promote research, grant capture, mentoring, collaboration, interdisciplinarity, and PhD training. For example, I started a funding seminar, which promotes individual applications for external funding, while at the same time helping students and junior members of staff understand how to select and apply for funding. In addition, I founded Arché’s first impact project in Autumn 2018 in an effort to be a more attractive host for funding and to contribute to the REF ranking of the department. The project involved giving three lectures on Science and Religion to the public and collecting information on how the lectures changed their beliefs or behaviour.
