ERC Starting Grant events in the UK, 19 & 26 July

​As UK National Contact Point for the European Research Council (ERC), UKRO is holding two events for researchers interested in applying for the 2018 ERC Starting Grant call.  There will be an event at the Natural History Museum in London on 19 July from 10.45-13.30 and another identical event at the University of Edinburgh on 26 July from 10.00-13.00.

The events are free but registration is essential. You can sign up on the UKRO website.

The 2018 Starting Grant call is likely to open on 18 July and close on 17 October. These grants offer flexible, generous funding to researchers with an excellent track record at the stage at which they are starting their own independent research team or programme. To be eligible for the 2018 call, the PI must be 2-7 years from their PhD on 1 January 2018, which is extendable in certain limited cases.

Research Connects 2017 PGR Conference

The Faculty of Engineering & Environment at Northumbria University is hosting a postgraduate research conference ‘Research Connects’, next Thursday, 15th June:

The PGR conference invites participation and communication across all postgraduate students in
the Engineering and Environment faculty. We challenge you to retain the richness and complexity
of your work while clearly communicating your intended meaning to the non-expert audience

Writing retreat for Northumbria researchers, Friday 23 June at the Northern Design Centre

Lots of people have told us how difficult it is to find space and time to write away from their offices. We’ve decided to run a writing retreat day where you can come along and write free from distraction at the Northern Design Centre.

There will be a quiet room to work in (with no talking and phones on silent please!) and a space outside where there will be free refreshments and lunch as well as an opportunity to meet and talk to colleagues from across the university. The retreat will run all day on Friday 23 June from 9.30-4 but feel free to come along at the times that suit you best. We don’t care what you’re writing. It can be an article or a grant application or something else related to your research.

For catering purposes and to make sure we have enough seating, please sign up on this doodle poll: https://doodle.com/poll/adcvq7b29tbn3v5t

If you haven’t been to the Northern Design Centre before, it isn’t that hard to find nor is it that far away. The address is Abbott’s Hill, Gateshead NE8 3DF. It is a couple of minutes walk from the Baltic.  

We’re hoping that this will be well attended and that we can then set some dates for regular writing retreats next academic year. We hope to see you there – please forward this on to any other colleagues that may be interested in coming along, regardless of department, faculty or job title.
