The Natural Environment Research Council is funding this School to help develop a Valuing Nature research community with a broader understanding of how to translate research into private sector decision making and innovation.
Business participants include Willis, Nestle, United Utilities, National Grid, Parsons Brinckerhoff, Aldersgate Group, Intelligent Health and Satellite Communications Catapult. The Business Impact School programmewill offer plenty of opportunity to interact with speakers, including a ‘hands-on’ session on designing research for business impact.
The Valuing Nature Programme is offering fully-funded places (school, travel, accommodation, meals, field trip) for around 25 early stage researchers. To be eligible, applicants must be registered for a PhD at the closing date for applications (5 February, 2016) or employed as a post-doc researcher and awarded a PhD on or after 1 January 2014. The School is open only to applicants registered or employed at UK universities or research bodies eligible for UK Research Council funding.
Full details are available on the Valuing Nature Programme website. The deadline for applications is the 5 February, 2016.
