Is there an interdisciplinary activity, conference or event you'd like to see that isn't currently on offer, why not organise your own?

From September you will be able to apply for the Doctoral Research Activities Fund which will allow you to apply for funding to manage your own interdisciplinary activity, event or training. Whether it's part of a group or on your own, managing a project supports your professional development with transferable skills including project, finance and people management. Keep and eye out on our funding pages for updates.
