NewMind Sandpit #4

Date: Wednesday 5th - Thursday 6th July 2017 

Venue: Chancellors Hotel, Chancellors Way, Moseley Road, Fallowfield, Manchester M14 6NN

The most recent NewMind Sandpit took place on Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th July 2017 in Manchester.

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. 

Groups collaborated to work up projects to bid for funding 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.

In order to obtain funding, it is necessary for candidates to attend at least one Sandpit event prior to submitting their proposal. Proposals must demonstrate 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.

Further assistance and guidance is available to groups who are working on proposals.
