'Work-Life Balance' in the Digital Age: Funding for networking events

The EPSRC-funded Balance Network aims to link academics with business, policy and user groups interested in the role that digital technologies are playing in (re)shaping our work and home lives. We are now inviting applications for the funding of events which further these aims, and which will form part of the network's programme of activities between November 2015 and April 2016.

Funding is available for organising a range of events or programmes of events, which could include (but are not restricted to):

  • public events
  • invitation-only workshops
  • visiting fellowships with a linked seminar
  • webinars
  • seminars series
  • conference streams and conference hosting.

A maximum of £35,000 will be awarded in total, and we anticipate the majority of successful proposals will be under £4,000. We aim to fund at least one activity led by an early career researcher. All events funded through this invitation will feed into Beyond Balance, a one-day large-scale Balance Network event taking place Monday 27 June 2016 at IET London, Savoy Place.
