The Vice-Chancellor's Innovation Awards 2020, announced in late July, celebrate research-led innovation at all University levels that is having societal or economic impact.

Now a series of online Innovation Conversations, taking place throughout September, offer the chance to hear more from each of the winners, as well as ask questions about their award-winning research.

The fourth Innovation Conversation in the series begins at 1pm on Wednesday 23 September 2020 with winner of the Building Capacity category, Professor Jonathan Prag.

Professor Prag has been studying the history of ancient Sicily for 20 years. Over that time he has developed a digital, online, open access corpus (I.Sicily) as a research tool and the foundation for an innovative series of collaborations to make the material accessible to a much wider public.
