Save the date! Annual UKRO visit on Friday 18 September

We have our annual UKRO visit coming up on Friday 18 September.  Alexandra Berry, Northumbria’s UKRO logoadvisor, will run a number of sessions on City Campus open to all staff and PGR students. I will post further details on how to sign up in early September but for now we can tell you that Alex will run the following sessions throughout the day:

  • Applying for EU funding – top tips and lessons learned from the first round of Horizon 2020 calls
  • Opportunities for academics to work with industry in Horizon 2020: FET, Industrial Leadership and Societal Challenges
  • Clinic session with 15-20 minute bookable slots – your chance to ask questions about EU funding and to start preparing for the upcoming 2016 Horizon 2020 calls.

If there is anything else you would like to see, please let me know asap and we can try to fit it into the day.

As always, if you are interested in EU funding and policy we would recommend you sign up for daily UKRO alerts. As the UK Research Councils’ European Office, they support and enable UK HE to access EU funding and to influence relevant EU policy initiatives.

We are also excited to have a visit from Jude Kirton-Darling, one of the regional MEPs, in the morning of the 18th to talk about how Europe benefits the North East, including through research and innovation funding. More details to follow shortly.
