Developing the Centre for Time Use Research – Time is a valuable commodity to society and the time use information, collected through surveys and the collection of detailed diaries potentially provides a comprehensive view of the conduct of daily life. Large Grant funding of c £1.9m over the next 5 years will enable the Centre for Time Use Research, led by Professor Jonathan Gershuny at the University of Oxford, to significantly expand and enhance the time use data available for researchers. Allowing more comprehensive analysis of how people from across 76 countries use their time; exploring how this has changed over time, if people's use of time is based on class, life stages or gender and how time use is affected by government policy.
Emotion Regulation of Others and Self - Sitting in a long traffic jam on a Friday afternoon and feeling stressed out most people would turn on the radio or wind down the window, this is a common technique that can be described as emotional regulation. Dr Peter Totterdell at University of Sheffield will lead the nine strong team of academics studying; Emotion Regulation of Others and Self: A Collaborative Research Network.
The project aims to investigate the mental and behavioural process of emotional regulation. When emotional regulation does not work it may lead to many mental health problems such as gambling alcohol and drug abused and even bipolar disorder. Understanding how people control their emotions can have great advantages to the individual well-being and performance of society. The project has been awarded c. £2.million over four years.

A stellar flare 10 times more powerful than anything seen on our sun has burst from an ultracool star almost the same size as Jupiter
A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.
Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...
The technology could revolutionize how information travels through data centers and artificial intelligence networks
Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley have built a new photonic switch that can control the direction of light passing through optical fibers...
Physicists observe how electron-hole pairs drift apart at ultrafast speed, but still remain strongly bound.
Modern electronics relies on ultrafast charge motion on ever shorter length scales. Physicists from Regensburg and Gothenburg have now succeeded in resolving a...
