Event description

Description

This event is aimed principally at social science academics, but will also involve technologists, knowledge exchange professionals and business partners, to explore the potential for collaborating on Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) bids.

"Gearing Up for the ISCF" is co-organised by the Innovation Caucus, Ulster University and Queen's University Belfast, and delivered in partnership with the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and Innovate UK. Aimed principally at social scientists, it will provide information and insights to gear up for forthcoming calls. The event will also incorporate perspectives from technologists and industrial partners, to help articulate the value and contribution of social science in tackling these challenges.

The ISCF was established to address business-led challenges and is one of several new funding opportunities as part of the Industrial Strategy. Many of the ISCF calls have a sector focus, under the Grand Challenges of the Industrial Strategy, ranging from Healthy Ageing to Manufacturing Made Smarter and Quantum Technologies to the Future of Flight. However, the emphasis on multidisciplinary business engagement offers significant opportunities for social science research, working in a variety of areas from business models to regulation, and from supply chains to societal acceptance.

This event will be of particular value to social science academics looking to find out more about ISCF challenges, or interested in exploring the potential to contribute to bids and build new partnerships.
