SARCHA joined forces with a number of EU and international Partners. Under the coordination of prof. Mark Dorrian Newcastle School of Architecture (also a SARCHA advisory board member), they submitted a proposal and got the Art and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) UK funding to hold meetings and work towards an EU proposal. The proposal's topic is Urbanism in an Age of Austerity (UAA) and is expected to be ready for submission in few months. A first meeting of partners will take place in Newcastle on October 19, 2012.
