Research by a Kingston University economist provides fresh evidence for Bitcoin being a safe haven for finance during a nation's economic crisis. The cryptocurrency proves volatile during a global crisis, however, as seen during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Seventy per cent of Kingston University's research has been rated as world-leading or internationally excellent in the Government's latest Research Excellence Framework (REF). The results represent a 10 per cent increase in the percentage of Kingston's world-leading or internationally excellent research from the previous assessment, published in 2014, with the University's overall grade point average rising to 2.89, up from 2.7 eight years ago.
Young filmmakers will be given access to 150 films from BBC Archive to creatively reuse in short films in a project led by Kingston University. The Make Film History project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) in collaboration with BBC Archive, will see 50 new films created by young filmmakers aged between 16 and 30.
