After helpful feedback from staff, we have agreed to temporarily remove the charts that appear on your external staff profile pages. These were a snapsnot of your publications, co-author network (which only showed current BU staff), and map of science (which isn’t clear as to what it shows). We will consider re-activating the available charts when they have been improved and become more meaningful.
The staff profile pages are currently not mapping across all ‘Authors’ listed within BRIAN for publications. Therefore, the staff profile pages have been amended so that publications now have an author title of ‘Authors at BU’. Development is underway for a complete list of authors to be shown and this will be provided shortly.
The popular Co-Creation and Co-Production (CCCP) strand is open to applications. This strand was most popular of the three open to staff in the July round with 38 applications.
A total of £246, 102.96 was awarded to successful applicants, to get ahead of the competition please note an important addition to the strand policy:
Successful bids will need to have benefits to the student experience at the core – and be able to demonstrate how this will occur, so hitting the Education point in the BU Fusion triangle is now more important than before.
Applications that do not satisfy how education at BU will be improved will not be looked at favourably by the panel. To review the full strand developments and how this has affected the policy, you can view the updated FIF CCCP policy sept.
Our successful CCCP applicants have been blogging about their activity on our Research Blog, I hope that you will be successful in securing funds in this round and will join them! Read their blogs below:
