BU Ageing and Dementia Research Forum

We are developing a forum for those interested in ageing and dementia research at Bournemouth University. The forum is an opportunity to get together to chat about research and share experiences in a safe and supportive environment. Specific topics will be discussed but there will also be time for open discussion to mull over aspects of research such as project ideas and planning, ethical considerations and patient and public involvement.

The next forum meetings will be in October and November (see table below), if you would like to join us, please email adrc@bournemouth.ac.uk so we can send you the meeting details.

Do you have any Big Ideas??!?!!?

EPSRC logoIf you have any Big Ideas that you would like to share – the EPSRC would like to hear about them here. Unlike other announcements, this is not a call for proposals but rather a request to help develop the research strategy of the EPSRC through a number of community led ‘Big Ideas’ related to engineering or physical sciences.

Please contact your faculty Funding Development Officer for help with the processes for submitting your idea or Ehren Milner (emilner@bournemouth.ac.uk) or Rachel Clarke (clarker@bournemouth.ac.uk) if you would like to develop your idea further before submitting it.
