Event description

Description

Prof Gary Fones, Theme Director for Sustainability and the Environment, is inviting researchers from across the Sustainability and Environment Theme to attend a project sandpit event.


***Open to all University academic and research staff***


Sandpits are intensive discussion forums where freethinking is encouraged and no ideas, comments or potential solutions are discounted. Researchers at all career stages are strongly encouraged to attend. At the sandpit, attendees can either join in the discussion or pitch a project idea. The discussion format will support researchers in gaining crucial feedback on their ideas, building links to collaborators and identifying funding streams. Sandpits are being tested as a way to enable the research community to support its researchers with the difficult task of developing strong funding bids from initial thoughts and ideas.

Sandpit session outline:

  • Individual or group project pitches (Pecha Kucha 6 minute presentations)
    • A project or idea that you would like to investigate or develop into a project proposal
    • Any particular challenges or areas where you think input from the group would be useful
    • What your next steps might be
  • Agree on sandpit ground rules
  • Group discussion to gather crucial feedback and inputs
  • Sandpit outputs are gathered together for the researcher(s) to use

If you would like to pitch at the event or have any questions then please get in touch with our Research Development Officer for Sustainability and the Environment, tom.greenwood@port.ac.uk, #5091.
