Call for proposals for science and technology workshops

5 July 2013

UCL researchers are invited to submit funding proposals to run collaborative workshops with a science or technology focus as part of the UCL-French Embassy partnership.

The call for proposals marks the second year of a five-year partnership between UCL and the French Embassy's Department of Science & Technology, supporting collaborative discussion between senior researchers in France and at UCL. Research leaders based at UCL are invited to apply for funds to organise collaborative workshops involving up to eight participants from UCL and up to eight from research institutions in France.

The scheme funds workshops on any topic linking science and technology. Applications can be for discussions addressing work at the frontiers of basic or applied science, of relevance to UCL's Grand Challenges or resonant with the European Union's framework programme. Previous workshops have considered subjects as diverse as the seismic fragility of urban infrastructure, the theoretical foundations of network analysis, and the chemical origins of life on earth.

For more information on how to apply, visit the UCL Grand Challenges website. The deadline for applications is 16 September 2013, with decisions announced on 14 October.
