Wednesday 26th October, start: 13:00 finish: 16:35; venue: Charles Wilson Second Floor

Cross-disciplinary research and collaborations can accelerate and lead to breakthroughs in research projects. Join us for a sandpit event which will explore some of the key issues in life sciences and healthcare with a view to developing, and potentially funding cross-disciplinary project ideas.

Experts in the themes of cancer, imaging and diagnostics will deliver talks exploring key issues and scenarios in life sciences and health care. Then, technologists will address ways to find solutions for the project ideas suggested.

Organised by the Research and Enterprise Division and funded by the STFC (Science and Technology Facilities Council) as part of its Impact Acceleration Account, the event is highly relevant to academics from the Colleges of Science and Engineering, and of Medicine, Biological Sciences and Psychology.

Three project ideas from this sandpit event may be eligible for funding of up to £10,000 (each). Projects are expected to be of six months’ duration and application forms must be submitted by 23rd November 2016. Panel presentations will be held on 5th December 2016.
