CTUR £6 Million Research Grants

The Centre for Time Use Research has won two major research grants. The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded an ‘Advanced Grant’ of €2.5 million which will pay staff salaries and supports research into historical changes in work and leisure, and social stratification and inequality in the distribution of time. The diaries also provide evidence of whether or not the population’s enjoyment of daily activities changes in parallel with, or contrary to, GNP.
