Cross-disciplinary event to generate ideas for STFC-funded projects

Where: Bennett Building, Lower Ground Floor Lecture Theatre 2
When:  Tuesday 27th October, 3.00pm - 5.00pm

The Research and Enterprise Division will be hosting a Sandpit event funded by the STFC (Science and Technology Facilities Council) as part of their Impact Acceleration Account. The aim of the event is to bring together academics from the College of Science and Engineering and College of Medicine, Biological Sciences and Psychology for cross-disciplinary discussions and to generate ideas for funded projects.

The event is split into two sections of one-hour duration each; the first section involves talks by industry professionals on the themes of healthcare, security, environment and energy and is open to the public as well as members of the University. The second section is restricted to University of Leicester staff only. Groups will break away to discuss on the four themes and to come up with ideas for projects.

These projects could receive funding of £5000 (each) from the sandpit event and are expected to be of 6 months duration.
