PVC Research, Prof. Paul Stewart, has blogged about The Vision Works, a research “sandpit” to be held in Lincoln in the Spring.
Modelled on the Research Council sandpits, the event is designed to enable Lecturers and Senior Lecturers at Lincoln to work together on innovative and multi-disciplinary research proposals in an exciting, supportive and encouraging environment.
Funding of £100K is available to support the outputs of the Vision Works: this ranges from direct project funding to buying out teaching time.
Application forms will be available soon, with a deadline of 21st December. Participants selected to take part will be notified in early January, and the event itself will take place in April 2012. Paul will be disseminating more information about the event to research directors and senior academics soon, who will then support potential participants to apply.
