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: research@lincoln.ac.uk to book a spot. Please be aware attendance is for University of Lincoln Staff only.

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, 13th March 2014 *FULLY BOOKED*
  • 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.

NERC: Networks of Sensors – Annual Technology Showcase “Pilot Installations and Practical Outcomes”

27th January 2014, Hamilton House, London, WC1H 9BD

The Natural Environment Research Council, supported by the ESP KTN, is running the third and final “Networks of Sensors” Annual Technology Showcase Event.

This year’s Showcase will feature the practical outcomes of three years of research, discussing the installations, hardware, software, and results of six very different types of Sensor Networks. In addition to the presentations, there will be opportunities for attendees to see the hardware and software, and to meet the teams.

The “Networks of Sensors” technology programme is an ambitious project to demonstrate the large scale deployment of high resolution sensor networks for environmental monitoring. The programme pushes the envelope in terms of developing new technological approaches to the realisation of sensor networks and communication systems, some of which may be in remote or hostile environments.
