The meeting will assemble key stakeholders to explore the consequences of short-term research funding and consider alternative models.
Participants will have the opportunity to engage in discussion with expert contributors. The meeting will provide a forum for serious discussion and lateral thinking about the way research is funded in the UK, with potential to feed into broader policy decision making processes. Participants with novel ideas about how to improve funding models or with suggestions on alternative ways of doing things are particularly encouraged to attend.
The event will be of interest to researchers working in higher education and their collaborators in other sectors, individuals with an interest in research reproducibility and ethics and those involved in allocation and administration of research funding.
