The Royal Society Funder Visit
Tue 28 March 2017, 11:30 – 13:30 BST
A small team from The Royal Society are visiting King’s College London on 28th March 2017 to present to us an overview of their funding schemes. This will be relevant to final-year PhD students and researchers from post-doctoral level upwards working in the areas of life and physical sciences (excluding clinical medicine) and engineering.
The Royal Society is the independent scientific academy of the UK, dedicated to promoting excellence in science. The Society is an independent, charitable body and performs a number of roles including influencing policymaking, promoting public engagement with science and funding leading scientists. Over £40 million is spent annually by the Royal Society across the grant-making schemes.
This is a very good opportunity to listen to a key funder and ask them questions about their approach to funding and how your research could fit their priorities.
The meeting will be held in the 2.40, in the Franklin Wilkins Building (Waterloo campus), from 11:30–13:30. The format will be:
11:30 – 12:00 Royal Society Presentation
12:00 – 12:20 “Experience of University Research Fellowship” George Booth, KCL Physics
12:20 – 12:50 Q&A Session
12:50 – 13:30 Refreshments & networking
