AHRC award funded for anti-microbial resistance project with the University of Reading

Jul 2017

Design Science is partnering with the Department of Typography & Graphic Communication at the University of Reading and pharmacy chain Day Lewis, on a project supporting one of the strategic aims of the UK 5-Year Antimicrobial Resistance strategy 2013–18, to ‘improve the knowledge and understanding of antimicrobial resistance’.

This project is one of 11 related projects, which have been awarded funding totalling £2.2m from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Our project will introduce ‘persuasive space’ in thinking about the presentation of information, its situation within an environment, and how users interact with it, in the context of a community pharmacy.

The AHRC grant is aimed at innovative approaches to tackling antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in indoor and built environments.
