The Wellcome Trust will be visiting Manchester Met on Wednesday 14th September, to present to an audience of researchers across the University. The presenters from the Trust will be Dr Candace Hassall and Thomas Bray.
The Wellcome Trust primarily funds research in bio-medical science and healthcare disciplines. However, the Trust also supports health research across humanities and social sciences. The aim of the event will be to gain a deeper understanding of the Trust as a funder. It will also provide an opportunity to network with staff from other disciplines.
The day will be split into two sessions:
Morning (2.5 hours) 10am to 12.30pm – open to all interested researchers.
10am – arrival, registration, refreshments.
10:30am – overview of Wellcome Trust grant schemes and priorities; more detailed discussion of Seed Awards; time for questions; short talk by Professor Richard Greene.
Lunch 12:30 to 1:30 – networking lunch open to all staff.
Afternoon (2 hours) 1:30pm to 3:30pm – invited researchers only. General overview of collaborative awards; discussion with invited groups of senior researchers developing collaborative awards; facilitate discussion within groups with feedback provided by the Wellcome Trust.
