This is just a reminder that the ERC Starting Grant workshop, organised by the European Team at Research Services, will be running over the next consecutive Wednesdays. This will be in preparation for the November 2015 deadline.
To be eligible for an ERC Starting Grant you must have 2-7 years post-PhD experience and a promising track record, with these aiming to support up-and-coming research leaders who are about to establish a proper research team and to start conducting independent research in Europe.
This workshop offers a thorough and detailed insight in ERC grants from experienced members of the European team, and will be invaluable for your Starting Grant application. Details below:
Date 1: Wednesday 8th July 2015 – 9:30am-12pm – Old Road Campus, Headington >>Book

“Enterprising Oxford” has been officially launched! This will provide a gateway for students and researchers to learn the basics of enterprise, from impact, to intellectual property, to setting up a business or social venture, and all the things in-between. You can find out how enterprising skills could be relevant to you and your career and development, with inspiring case studies, events and training from across the Oxford community.
This online resource, developed by the Mathematical, Physical and Life Science division and the Entrepreneurship and Skoll Centres at the Said Business School, will provide answers to common questions including:
— What does it mean to be enterprising?
— Why should someone focussed on a career in research and academia be interested?
— What is ‘impact’ and how is it related to enterprise?
— How do scientific ideas get to market?
— Are there any events or training courses that can help me?
— What about social and cultural enterprises?
The website will keep a focus on upcoming events and local resources, and will have dedicated pages for FAQ’s and advice on the steps to beginning your Enterprising journey. There is also a newsletter providing a round-up of the website’s key news and views.

Are you a researcher that frequently analyses data? Can you spare 5 minutes to assist an Engineering student at the University of York by completing a 12 answer questionnaire?
The questionnaire will aid a research report investigating whether sonification will play a vital role in the future as technology develops. This involves investigating the current potential problems researchers face during data analysis. The results of this questionnaire will assess whether researchers suggest that current methods for analysing data potentially hinders their work.
The questionnaire will ask no personal questions and no personal data will be stored. For full ethical details, please Click Here to contact the investigator.
