NewMind Sandpit #3

NEWMIND SANDPIT #3

8th - 9th February 2017

East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham 

The EPSRC funded NewMind Network for the development of technologies to support & transform the management and treatment of mental health held its 3rd Sandpit event in February 2017. The event brought together clinicians, EPS researchers, patient representative groups, mental health charities, service users, NHS organisations, and industry partners to develop ideas and proposals to submit for funding to the NewMind Plus Stage 1 Feasibility Fund. 

NewMind plans to award grants for projects that investigate underlying Engineering & Physical Science challenges for technology in the service of Mental Health.

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.

The agenda for this event is available here and the presentation slides can be viewed here.
