POSTPONED: Law School Research and Impact Funding Workshop


31 March 2020, 10.00 AM - 31 March 2020, 1.30 PM

Lady Hale Moot Court, 8-10 Berkeley Square

The Law School Research and Impact Funding Workshop will take place on 31 March 2020, 10.00-13.30, Lady Hale Moot Court, 8-10 BSQ.

The aim of the event is to share information on research and impact funding opportunities and provide guidance on applying to different schemes/funders. There will also be an opportunity to hear from our new Research Director, Pat Capps, who will talk about the research funding environment in which the school is working in. And there will be a session on ‘Impact’, explaining what this is and the opportunities available to support impact and engagement activities. The workshop will also be a chance to meet colleagues and share experience and seek advice on applying for and managing external research funding. 

Colleagues from RED will be joining us: Julian Jantke (Research Commercialisation Manager); Samuel Lambshead (Research Development Associate); Eloise Meller (Knowledge Exchange Associate); and Lucy Parnall (Research Development Manager).

The workshop is open to all colleagues in the Law School with a contract to undertake duties which include research (& PGR’s welcome). It is expected that anyone applying for research leave in October 2020 will attend.
