NewMind Sandpit #5

Date: Monday 27th - Tuesday 28th November 2017 

Venue: Jurys Inn, Station Road, Nottingham, NG2 3BJ

The most recent NewMind Sandpit took place on Monday 27th and Tuesday 28th November 2017 in Nottingham.

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.

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