Leverhulme Programme Event at Kent

Lord Leverhulme.
With a tie. Knotted.
Each year Leverhulme announces two areas of interest for which it will provide grants of up to 1.75m. It only funds two grants. This year the topics are:
  • The Nature of Knots
  • Innovation for Sustainable Living.

These are intended to be interpreted broadly, but more detail is provided on Leverhulme's website, here. Whilst Leverhulme do not set a limit on the number of applications per university, the small number of grants awarded would suggest that we do not put huge effort into a large number of applications.

With this in mind it would make sense for anyone interested to get together to meet others, talk about their work, and see what mileage there is collaboration inside or outside the University.

To this end we will be will be holding a meeting at 12:30pm on 18 March in Woolf Seminar Room 5. Come along if you want to find out more about the Leverhulme Programme Grants, and to hear from a previous applicant about what was involved.
