Physical Sciences Theme Early Career workshops

EPSRC is holding two one-day workshops for Early Career Researchers who work in the area of Physical Sciences:

The workshops will be held in:

  • Newcastle, 20 November 2019
  • Bristol, 30 January 2020

The workshops will provide an update to EPSRC and Physical Sciences strategies and will communicate recent and upcoming policy changes. The workshops will be attended by a number of EPSRC staff, and also by experienced academics, current or previous Early Career Fellowship holders from across the Physical Sciences portfolio, UKRI Future Leadership Fellows and New Investigator Awardees, all of whom will provide guidance and mentoring throughout the workshop. The workshops will also include opportunities for networking with other Early Career colleagues.

We anticipate this event will be of greatest interest to Physical Sciences researchers who are eligible to hold an EPSRC grant and hold few or no grants as a Principal Investigator.

The aims of the workshops are to:

  • Develop Early Career researcher’s understanding of EPSRC, including strategic priorities and funding mechanisms.
  • Inform the Early Career researchers on the range of schemes available to them, and to clarify the differences between these.
  • Develop relationships between EPSRC and Early Career researchers who will become future advocates for EPSRC.

Those wishing to attend the workshop should complete the Expression of Interest (EoI) form on this page. Places are limited and the number of participants from a given organisation may have to be restricted in the event of multiple applications. Selection will primarily be based on the justification of attendance. In addition, EPSRC will also ensure a balanced representation of organisation, research area, and expertise and career stage.

The EoI will close at 16.00 on Thursday 24 October 2019.
