Institute of Healthcare Engineering - Workshop Awards

The aim of the IHE Workshop Award is to promote interdisciplinary collaboration across UCL and UCL Partner Hospitals, in order to develop new research approaches and technologies in the field of healthcare engineering. The scheme will bring together new consortia and we anticipate will result in numerous prestigious outputs such as peer-reviewed publications, grant applications, patents, IP etc.

Details and conditions
  • IHE Workshop Awards will be made in areas that align with the UCL IHE remit, with preference given to new activity at UCL which brings together an interdisciplinary team from across Departments, Faculties and UCL Partner Hospitals. 
  • Workshops should focus on bringing together researchers and clinicians at UCL and should have a concrete plan for building activity after the workshop (for example, publications, grant applications, patents, IP, etc).
  • Workshops are expected to be internal UCL events to stimulate new collaboration and approaches within our community, although linked external speakers may be appropriate.
  • A maximum of £1500 will be awarded to the running of the workshop, and this can contribute to funding any aspect of running the workshop, except for investigator time.
  • Successful applicants will also have full access to the IHE Professional Services teams, including our Research & Development Manager, and Marketing, Communications & Events team. Support can include planning and publicising the event and outputs, and facilitating follow on grant applications, among other examples.
  • Applications can be submitted at any time, although once the total funding for the scheme in one year is exhausted the scheme will be closed. A decision will be made within 4 weeks of receipt of the application.
  • A maximum of one award per lead applicant will be made in one year.
  •  Award recipients must acknowledge funding from the UCL IHE in any presentation materials and/ or outputs for example publications, applications, etc (logo will be provided).
  • Award recipients are required to write a short report on the workshop, due within 4 weeks of the workshop date, which may be used for online and social media materials.
  • The decision to award a Workshop Award is at the discretion of the IHE Management Board and distribution of workshops across the IHE themes may be considered.
