We will be hosting a series of ‘kick off’ events around the UK in autumn 2019.  Locations include Newcastle, Swansea and Belfast, amongst others.

The purpose of these events will be to:

  • Share more details of our upcoming funding calls and what support will be available to help with proposal development.
  • Facilitate discussions around possible collaborations and projects to address our Emerging Minds research challenges.
