saric242x1508-9 March 2016 (Tuesday – Wednesday)
Park Inn, Nottingham

The Biotechnology & Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and NERC invite you to participate in a two-day interactive strategic workshop (sandpit) with the ultimate aim of funding up to six multidisciplinary research translation projects within the remit of the Sustainable Agriculture Research Club (SARIC).

  • Applicants must register their interest to participate and will receive a formal invitation confirming attendance.
  • This is a SARIC event and therefore all proposal ideas developed during the sandpit must fall within the remit of SARIC and its two key challenges.
  • Specific business issues in need of addressing will be posed by SARIC industry members ahead of the sandpit.
  • Participants will be expected to present a project idea as part of a multidisciplinary team to an expert panel on the final day of the sandpit.
  • Sandpit participants will have the opportunity to submit a full research translation proposal through Je-S in early May 2016.
  • For those invited to attend, reasonable costs for travel and accommodation will be met.
