Description

SICSA Workshop on Centres for Doctoral Training

As an academic environment, we feel that Scotland is a great place to do CompSci research: friendly, collaborative, flexible and sometimes quirky. We want to ensure we are ready for a future EPSRC CDT funding call (expected in the next 12 months) by running a workshop event where we can share information and experience. We aim to establish strategic partnerships between smaller institutions that will give Scotland a good chance to achieve positive outcomes in future CDT applications.

We are therefore holding a SICSA Centres for Doctoral Training Strategy workshop at the Informatics Forum in Edinburgh on 31 March 2017. A representative from EPSRC will attend and provide advice and guidance.

The event will also feature presentations from the seven SICSA Research Themes by our Theme Leaders.
