There will be a diverse range of presentations, workshops and public lectures, all related to different aspects EU research funding.

Whilst the agenda is yet to be confirmed, we plan to cover: 

  • EU-funding post-Brexit (including a discussion on the outcome of the staff survey)
  • Guidance on EU funding schemes both within the Horizon 2020 framework and external to it e.g. ERC, Marie-Sklodowska Curie, FET-Open, Societal Challenges, COST, HERA
  • Updates on forthcoming Horizon 2020 opportunities in different areas
  • Proposal-writing surgeries
  • Showcase of EU-funding success stories (including a public lecture on an ERC-funded research project)
  • Post-award and financial issues
  • Information on ethics, open-access and data management within EU funding

The Symposium will also include H2020 information sessions delivered by our UKRO representative, Ailidh Woodcock, and a talk from Professor Lisa Roberts, DVC for Research at Leeds.

Additionally, we also hope to welcome EU Funding National Contact Points, Leeds-based PI’s and Research & Innovation Service colleagues to take part and help us in delivering sessions.  Our aim is to provide colleagues with a comprehensive programme of informative and inspiring sessions related to EU research funding.
