INCORE Hosts Marie Curie Fellows

INCORE Hosts Marie Curie Fellows.
Since 2009 the University of Ulster has been a partner in a Marie Curie International Training Site for Sustainable Peacebuilding. This is composed of a dynamic network of 10 Universities and research institutions from 8 different European countries. The Training Site was made possible by a grant of over 2 million euros from the EU's FP7 People Programme and aims to provide high quality training and research on peace building, especially the promotion of good governance, inclusive development and comprehensive security. At present INCORE is hosting four Marie Curie Research Fellows.

New Masters: Peace and Conflict Studies with Early Years

New Masters in Applied Peace and Conflict Studies with Early Years
In September 2012 INCORE, as part of its redesign postgraduate provision in Peace and Conflict Studies, launched a new Postgraduate Diploma/MSc in Applied Peace and Conflict Studies with Early Years. This is offered in partnership with a Northern Ireland based organization for young children called Early Years. As a result of this partnership Early Years will offer 10 bursaries each for the first two years of the programme and one of the core modules for the course will be offered fully online by an international network of experts who are linked to Early Years from Northern Ireland, South Africa, Israel, Lebanon and Colombia. This initiative was made possible by a substantial grant to Early Years from the European Regional Development Fund under the PEACE III Programme. More details of both this programme and the Postgraduate Diploma/MSc in Applied Peace and Conflict Studies are available from the University's online prospectus

INCORE iPhone App now available

INCORE iPhone App
In a new development INCORE/CAIN has released a free iPhone App which provides users with information and photographs about the hundreds of memorials related to the "Troubles". INCORE commissioned local company EyeSpyFX, a University of Ulster spin out company, to carry out the development of the App. The App can also be used on the iPad. The information displayed comes from databases that are available on the CAIN Web site. If a user is in Northern Ireland the geo-locating facility of the App can be accessed to find nearby memorials. Users of the App can also send updated information about new or existing memorials to the CAIN site. Professor Brandon Hamber, Director of INCORE, said: "We are always looking at different ways to make the information on the CAIN Web site more accessible to a wider audience. The Memorials App is just the start."
