10 June, 2016 - BBSRC funding workshop

Time: 13:00:00 - 15:00:00

The UCL SLMS Research Coordination Office is pleased to announce a workshop on Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) funding. This will be an opportunity to hear from the BBSRC funding team and a BBSRC-funded UCL researcher. In addition to covering the BBSRC remit, funding opportunities, and peer review process, we have asked our speakers to discuss research areas that may sit at the BBSRC/MRC interface and how to tailor such research projects to align with the BBSRC remit; we therefore particularly encourage attendance from researchers in Divisions/Institutes that are classically disease-oriented (who may have more experience with MRC) but who have basic biology research that could be relevant for the BBSRC remit. The workshop is open to all research staff.

14 June, 2016 - SLMS Introduction to Information Governance training and awareness event

Time: 14:00:00 - 15:30:00

IT for SLMS are inviting UCL research staff/students to attend one of the monthly Information Governance (IG) training and awareness events. If you have attended this event before or you have equivalent NHS IG training, then you need not attend. This event will provide clear guidance on information governance responsibilities and control, how these affect research activities and how the SLMS Information Governance Framework can help researchers meet their legal obligations. Attendance at this event together with successful completion of an online assessment in Moodle (‘SLMS Information Governance - Assessment of Understanding’) will fulfil your information governance training needs under the SLMS IG Framework. On passing the assessment, a certificate will be issued and your training is recorded on the SLMS IG training register. Certificates will be valid for one year and to renew you just need to retake and pass the Moodle Assessment of Understanding, online.

The mentoring sessions will run for 3 hours and early career researchers will be able to sit in throughout in order that they can learn from their peers and vice versa. Early career researchers will submit their proposal two weeks in advance, which will then be passed on to senior academic mentors. There are only 12 places on the mentoring workshop, your place will be reserved once you have sent your two page research proposal to r.aldridge@ucl.ac.uk.
