Research partnership with leading UK University

ANNOUNCEMENT: Audicin joins forces with The University of Sheffield to conduct breakthrough research into music treatments and nervous system regulation.

The Audicin Research Team is excited and proud to announce the launch of an academic research program with The University of Sheffield.

The new collaborative program, headed by Dr. Victoria Williamson, will support postgraduate students undertaking dissertation research alongside Audicin. Audicin is committed to building a strong evidence base, to being the market leader in the scientific research of music treatments, so this program fits squarely with our aims.

The University of Sheffield is a leading institution for collaborative research. They are working in partnership with policymakers and funders to develop innovative solutions to global challenges, and the world stress health crisis is up there amongst the highest priorities for both the United Nations and the World Health Organization

This new research and business collaboration will foster student training and experience opportunities in the world of start-up entrepreneurship, and stimulate teamwork opportunities between researchers and business leaders.

In particular, we are delighted to be in a working partnership with the wonderful Dr Caroline Curwen PhD, FCA, FHEA, an expert in music-colour synesthesia where shapes and colours are experienced by some when listening to music.

In the first phase, Drs Curwen and Williamson will support 3 postgraduate students undertaking projects on subjects such as cross-cultural outcomes from Audicin (from the UK and China), individual differences (experiences of those living with ADHD), and a wide variety of impact measures.

CEO of Audicin Laura Avonius said of the new partnership;

“I’m delighted for this opportunity to strengthen Audicin’s scientific profile thanks to a collaboration alongside such a prestigious, international research institution as The University of Sheffield. The intense learning journeys of students are often associated with stress and nervous system regulation challenges, hence it’s important to hear their voices and get research about their experiences and support needs embedded into our solution”
