Public Engagement Conversations

Public Engagement Conversations are short, informal meetings on a Wednesday afternoon where researchers and professional services staff meet to learn more about, and discuss, specific engagement-related themes. Researchers from across the University (and occasionally, outside of it) present on an area of interest, followed by Q&As and focused discussion. Refreshments are provided. Several conversations are running across the Autumn. Further information.

Application Surgeries

The Research Development & Knowledge Exchange (RDKE) team will be running 'Application Surgeries' to allow those applying for external research funding the opportunity for constructive feedback on any aspect of your planned research or knowledge transfer activities, and provide suggestions for a way forward to completion and submission. 

Surgeries will be run once a month and attendance is on a first come first served basis. Sessions are for one hour and documents for review should be submitted at least a week before the session date.
