    Description

    What are UNICAS Sandpit events?

    UNICAS Sandpits are informal events where delegates can; showcase their own research expertise, hear about the research projects of others, discuss specific research challenges and find solutions to those challenges through face-to-face networking and establishing new collaborations.

    UNICAS Sandpits are relevant for all levels of research & academic staff from new lecturers to senior academics. Each delegate will be given the opportunity to present one-slide-in-one-minute to either highlight their expertise, research interest and potential areas for collaboration and/or a research problem where additional expertise is required.

    Delegates will be able to apply for funding for an interdisciplinary research project which results from the sandpit. Maximum £15,000 per project, 4 month project beginning on 1st April 2016.
