Cross Research Council Mental Health Networking Event
Location: London Date: 31 October 2017 Time: 09:00 – 17:00
The research councils are holding an informal networking event at the Imperial War Museum in London on 31 October 2017. The aim of this event is for potential applicants to learn more about our expectations of the successful network plus awards, as well as meeting potential collaborators.
Attendance at this event will be capped at 100 spaces. In the event of oversubscription RCUK will limit the number of attendees per organisation, and also by discipline to allow for even representation across the remits of the research councils. Therefore attendees will be expected to represent the wider interests of their organisation as well as their individual interests. Due to the cross-disciplinary nature of these awards, the aim is for attendees at the networking event to span the remits of the research councils.
Attendance is welcomed from potential applicants and collaborators representing academia and also charities, service providers, businesses, clinicians etc.
