BU will be hosting the Royal Society on Wednesday, 5th February 2020, 11:00 – 13:00, at the Lansdowne Campus.
The Royal Society is the independent scientific academy of the UK, dedicated to promoting excellence in science.
The Society is an independent, charitable body and performs a number of roles including influencing policy-making, promoting public engagement with science and funding leading scientists. Over £40 million is spent annually by the Royal Society across the grant-making schemes. The Royal Society dates from the 1660s and supports a diverse programme of activities.
This session will deliver an overview of the Royal Society’s funding schemes and provide advice on putting together a successful funding application. Academics with a successful track record will discuss their personal experiences. There will be a Q&A session followed by a networking lunch.
The intended learning outcomes of this session are:
- To learn about the UK’s Royal Society, its remit and the type of funding offered
- To be able to determine whether or not the Royal Society is an appropriate funder for your research project
