The University of Lincoln’s UK Research Office European Advisor, Edward Heelas, will be visiting the university on Tuesday 25th February. The agenda for the day has now been finalised and is as follows:
Horizon 2020 Overview
Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (NCP:UKRO*)
European Research Council (NCP:UKRO*)
The UK Research Office (http://www.ukro.ac.uk/Pages/UKRO.aspx) is the Europe-based office of RCUK, providing information and advice on European Union funding for research and higher education. In addition to supporting UK universities with the new Horizon 2020 funding programme, UKRO are also the UK National Contact Point for the prestigious European Research Council funding grants and the Marie Curie schemes within Horizon 2020.
All will take place in Think Tank in the Orange Room. Attendance is open to all University of Lincoln Academic and Support staff. If you would like to attend any or all of the above please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of what which sessions.
The Research and Income Generation team will be running a Workshop for the College of Social Science to support anyone who is considering submitting an application for the above scheme.
The Small Grants scheme supports humanities and social science research projects and is an ideal opportunity for those looking for a pot of money for a small scale piece of research or those who are looking to start off their research career.
Funding is available for:
initial stage project planning and development, e.g. pilot studies/feasibility studies
direct costs of research, e.g. library and archive visits or data collection
advancement of research through workshops and conferences
visits by or to partner scholars
Collaborative or individual projects are equally welcome, and projects may involve international collaboration.
This workshop will enable you to find out more about the call, what they are looking for, top tips, and help you to turn your research ideas into a successful application.
If you are interested in attending please email: email@example.com to book a spot. Please be aware attendance is for University of Lincoln Staff only.
The DCC runs a series of free, online training sessions covering a wide range of digital curation-related topics. These brief sessions will last for one hour and will provide participants with an introduction to some of the current issues, some examples of emerging good practice, and an overview of tools and approaches.
The webinars will run on the second Thursday of each month. The sessions will be run using Google+ Hangouts but participants do not need to have a Google account to take part. Please register for each session before 11:00 on the day of the session so that we can provide you with links to the slides following the session.

Customising DMPonline, 10th April 2014 (16:00 GMT) - Register
About the session:
DMPonline is the DCC’s web-based tool to help researchers write Data Management Plans. They’ve recently released a new version of the tool which offers a lot of flexibility in terms of how institutions can customise it. You can create your own template to provide questions and guidance that researchers should respond to, add tailored guidance to help researchers answer funders questions, and provide examples and suggested answers. This webinar will demo the new version of DMPonline and profile the options available for customising the tool by showing examples from a number of early adopters.
Future topics will be announced as they are confirmed. If you have an idea for a webinar or would like to suggest a topic, please get in touch with the DCC.
This grant is normally available for newly appointed lecturers, in their first permanent academic appointment in a Higher Education Institute, to pump-prime their microbiological research. It will normally not be awarded to applicants who have already received a major research grant from other sources. Applicants should be current Full Members of SfAM and have been so for at least two years prior to their application. Funding of up to £10,000 is available to a successful applicant.
Applicants can apply for this grant within three years of the start date of their first appointment. Applicants need not necessarily be in a ‘Microbiology’ lecturer post but their research field and proposed project should be in the field of Applied Microbiology. This grant is not available to Research Fellows or Postdoctoral Researchers. Applicants must enclose a CV with their application. The closing date for applications is 30 September each year.
Being Human aims to engage the public with the very best of the innovative research taking place across the humanities. Hosted by HE institutions and their cultural and community partners across the UK, it will draw together a programme of activities to inform, extend, and ignite our contemporary thinking and imagination.
In this inaugural year, the School is extending an open call for applications for small grants of £2-3k to facilitate participation in the festival. These grants will support activities that make humanities research accessible to the general public and demonstrate the role the humanities can play in the cultural, intellectual, political and social life of the UK.
The question of what it means to be human is at the heart of humanities research, and for this festival will provide a locus around which to demonstrate the vitality and public relevance of the humanities in 2014. Following the success of the Being/Human theme used for the 2013 Arts and Humanities Festival at King’s College London, this festival will inspire engagement with humanities research on a national scale.
Apply for event funding
The School of Advanced Study, University of London, together with the AHRC and the British Academy, has made available a number of funding grants of between £2-3kfor events to be staged during the Festival week.
