The Nahrein Network

New Ancient History Research for Education in Iraq and its Neighbours

The Nahrein Network fosters the sustainable development of antiquity, cultural heritage and the humanities in Iraq and its neighbours. We support interdisciplinary research to enable universities, museums, and community groups to better serve local, post-conflict needs.

The Network is based at University College London, Sulaimani Polytechnic University, Al-Qadisiyah University, and the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. It also has many international partners. We are funded for four years, 2017-21, by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Global Challenges Research Fund Network Plus scheme. 

Research Grants Scheme: Bonus Round

The Network received 22 applications to the recent Bonus Round of our Research Grants Programme, offering grants of up to £10,000 (FEC). We aim to inform all applicants of the committee's decisions by the end of October. Please see the Research Grant Awards page for details of projects we have funded before.
