Networking Awards - funding for themed one-off events
that bring together university researchers with
stakeholders, policy makers, practitioners etc from outside
academia to share information and develop new
collaborations.
Sandpit Awards - funding to bring together a group of
academic staff to develop research projects on a chosen
theme. Seedcorn funds can be made available for projects
resulting from the sandpit events.
Both of these calls are to be run on an open basis, without
deadlines. However the total funding available is limited.

opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the
Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR) funding
stream.
Extracellular vesicles are small nanoparticles with average
size 50-1000 nm which have recently emerged as a novel
means of communication. Their compositional complexity
provides the basis for implication in the variety of
biological processes. Early career researchers (clinical
doctors, biologists, chemists, physicists and
mathematicians) cordially invited to apply to attend
workshop. Deadline for applications is December 19th.
Travel grants are available for Early Career Researchers.
The current Ebola conference is being planned jointly
with scientists from Public Health England (UK) and the
Wellcome Trust, while keeping these concerns in view;
and to bring together all those involved in Ebola research
and containment onto a single platform, to share
experiences, to help formulate a common containment
and treatment theme and to find the way forward. The workshop is open to all those in any discipline who
are working, or interested in working, in research relating
to Multimorbidities in older people. Representatives from
a range of NIHR programmes and supporting NIHR
infrastructure will attend to advise on the various funding
routes available and provide help and guidance on
developing and submitting an application.
Professor Marshall’s talk, plus two presentations from
current Bristol award holders and a Q&A session will take

The Scientific Conference offers a unique opportunity to
showcase both service and university based public health
research and evaluation from across the South West. The
programme promises to be an exciting mix of plenary
presentations, parallel sessions and posters. The event
will promote debate and new learning across the full
range of public health disciplines in the South West.
The Spring Meeting for Clinician Scientists in Training is a
unique cross specialty event designed to bring clinical
academic trainees together to present their work and
network with senior scientists in a supportive and
nurturing environment. The meeting combines oral and
poster competitions with inspiring talks from senior
scientists. There are ample networking opportunities
which are a superb chance for budding clinical academics
to get noticed.The deadline for abstract submissions for
all competitions is Friday 5 September 2013, 17:00.
Staff Development Training: This session will give you an
introductory overview to the support that is given for
applicants applying for grants and the opportuntities
there are for funding.
Ideally suited to those new to the application process.
Staff Development training : What makes a good
research bid? In addition to the perspective of the
academic, you will be invited to consider from the
perspective of the funder and peer reviewer. Important
elements of bid preparation and most common reasons
for failure will be explored with advice and tips being
provided throughout the day on best practice. The
workshop will be interactive in nature and you will be
encouraged to share experiences and partake in group
exercises.
This workshop is aimed at those who already have some
experience of applying for or have been involved in an
application for funding.
Symposium presents the leading edge of health services
research in a multidisciplinary programme that includes
research presentations and posters, alongside plenaries
from research and service leaders. Abstracts, proposals to
