Description

StrathWide is a one-day conference/symposium for assistants/associates/fellows from all job families (research/teaching/knowledge exchange) which aims to promote new collaborations across Faculties. The conference provides cutting-edge keynote talks, networking opportunities and access to funding support for new collaboration projects.

Organised by reserachers for researchers, participants will share their ideas for interdisciplinary projects to address Strathclyde's seven strategic themes and find partners to make it a reality.

Participants will have the chance to prepare and submit a collaborative project proposal, and be awarded between £1-1.5k in funding (with further funding possible) in the form of small starting grants for collaborators to kick-start their project.

(the organisers have secured £25k for the grant pot, with the idea of funding 10 to 15 projects)
