LARGE RESEARCH GRANTS APPLICATIONS SUCCESSFUL
EU European Commission IST-1999-10664. Sillince J.A.A. (Project Coordinator from pre-application July 1998 until project start March 2001; passed coordination role over to Royal Holloway colleagues on appointment with Aston Business School) Internet-based intelligent tool to Support Collaborative Argumentation-based LEarning in secondary schools (SCALE); The project centres on the specification, design and implementation of an Internet-based software tool to support argumentation-based collaborative learning in secondary schools. Knowledge would be elicited from teachers in their classrooms and coded into the software, which would be continuously prototyped, tested within three schools in each of the applicants countries, and then disseminated to a larger number of schools. Collaborative use of the software will be encouraged, including interactions between children from different countries via the Internet. Partners are (1) Royal Holloway University of London (lead partner, Sillince, Saeedi, Rosenberg, Saxton), (2) GRIC (Groupe de Recherche sur les Interactions Communicatives — Research Group on Communicative Interactions), Université Lumière Lyon 2; (3) Dept of Educational Sciences, Utrecht University; (4) University of Jyväskylä, Department of Education; (5) Departamento de Didáctica e Tecnologia Educativa, Campus Universitário de Santiago, Universidade de Aveiro; (6) Department of Computing and Management Science, Sheffield Hallam University; (7) Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de St. Etienne; (8) Mediamatic Interactive Publishing, Amsterdam; (9) Szamalk Training and Consulting Centre, Budapest. Project number IST-1999-10664 2000-2003, 2.097 m Euro (Royal Holloway share £412,526; total £1,310,695 for period 2001-2003).

Enterprise Activity Support Fund. Newcastle U. 2014. £30,000 initial grant. Principal Investigator Tyrone Pitsis (Newcastle U). Workshop to develop the foundations and frameworks for a programme of works that will place Newcastle University and its partners at the centre of the creation, design, governance, execution of economic and societal transforming social enterprise. Additional members of the project team: Andrea Whittle (Newcastle U.), John Sillince (Newcastle U) Peter Gosling Newcastle U.), Simin Davoudi (Newcastle U.), Mark Tewdwr-Jones (Newcastle U.), Mairi Maclean (Exeter U). Michelle Booth (Gateshead City Council). Dinah Bennett, Linda Rutter, (ICE). Martin Steinert (NTNU, Norway). Larry Leiffer (Stanford U USA). Krzysztof Dembek (U. of Melbourne, Australia).
The Virtues of Finance. Fulbright/ESRC. £300,000. The project aims to study virtue in finance both in terms of the inclusion and exclusion of specific virtues within formal self-representations in texts such as corporate reports, brochures and web sites as well as in interviews with senior financial executives and banking stakeholders. The objective is to document the appearance and disappearance of virtue in the language of finance and thereby generate reflexivity on the inseparability of virtue from its management and organizational practices. In opposition to the limited view of virtue as an inherent leadership trait, the proposed project will study virtue as a social relational process that can be nurtured to generate spirals of positivity within organizations. The research will facilitate the development of events and education initiatives. There will be interviews conducted in New York, London, Lisbon and Sydney. Hence, two sets of interviews will be conducted with personnel in the heartland of the crisis’ engine room – New York and London; one set will be conducted in one of the Eurozone’s more troubled regions, Lisbon, and one set will be conducted in an area that largely escaped the crisis, Sydney.
