Digital Economy Regional Meetings

The RCUK Digital Economy (DE) Theme is planning a series of Regional Meetings across the UK, to engage with a cross-section of the DE community.

The aims of the Regional Meetings are to communicate EPSRC’s ongoing strategy, the current DE funding landscape, and opportunities for DE researchers (including standard mode applications, fellowships, and the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund), whilst gathering information and input regarding emergent topics of interest and current issues in the DE community. The agenda will include presentations from RCUK staff, Q&A, panel discussions, and facilitated breakout sessions.

Attendance will be subject to application via an Expression of Interest questionnaire: Depending on subscription rates, applicants will be selected according to discipline, career stage, alignment with DE remit, institution (to ensure a balance) and eligibility for RCUK funding. The Expression of Interest survey will close on the 11th August at 17:00. Applicants will be informed of the outcome by the end of August, and attendees will be asked to participate in a further more focussed survey.

Information will also be made available on the EPSRC Events web page.
