NewMind / NeuroD Joint Sandpit Proposal Workshop


Thursday 18th May - Kanaris Lecture Theatre (no. 44 on Campus Map), Manchester Museum, Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9PL. 


Bringing together previously developed proposals from within the NewMind network, and those developed by the EPSRC funded NeuroD Platform (a Dementia Road-mapping & Community Building Network for research initiatives into Neurodegenerative Diseases across The University of Manchester), the  purpose of the 18th May workshop was to provide an additional opportunity for previously developed, but as yet either un-submitted or non-awarded proposals to benefit from the involvement of network members bringing new skills and approaches.

Funding is available in two stages:

  • awards for up to 12 exploratory / feasibility projects (~£15k),
  • larger grant support (~£45k) for up to four of these initial projects.

A prerequisite of funding is that applicants must attend at least one Sandpit event prior to submitting their proposal, and that it shows strong alignment with the priorities and outcomes contained in the network's Research Roadmap.

Details of how to apply for funding will be made available at the event, together with an outline of the support available to help develop proposals.
