Event description

Description

NERC festival of research

The need for a forum to raise awareness of and showcase our NERC funded research was expressed on several occasions during the first NERC funder group meeting, in order to:

      share interdisciplinary knowledge

      get to know colleagues with NERC relevant research interests

      share good practice

      explore interdisciplinary funding opportunities.

The group has decided to hold an event to achieve these objectives on an annual basis, the first one being planned for the 28th of September 2016, 14:00-18:00. The event will be open to the entire university to trigger cross-disciplinary collaborations.

Given attendance and the breadth of disciplines represented, we would like to extend the invitation to this event to external parties, including NERC representatives. This aligns with one of the core objectives of our NERC funder group “to develop relationship with the funder with a view to influence its agenda and strategic priorities”.

The event will comprise three distinct sessions:

      Oral presentations

      Posters

      Ice-breaker/reception

Presentations are invited from all NERC funded academics. Earlier expressions of interest indicated good participation. Please note that en expression of interest doesn’t allocate you a slot in one of the session. Slots will generally be attributed on a first come first served basis.

Presentations will be 5 minutes and will be grouped to align with NERC's discovery science panel structure (detailed in the attached pdf). Talks should focus on providing insights into current/recent research to a general audience of NERC-remit researchers, rather than high-level specifics of particular questions.

Posters are an opportunity for staff and NERC funded PhD students to showcase their research using existing material.

The afternoon will close with a reception to facilitate networking and to strengthen our renewed focus on collaboration, networks and interdisciplinarity.
