Summary of meeting

The aim of this ‘All Hands’ event was to introduce academics, post-docs and research managers in the UKCRIC partnership to the C-DICE programme.

We invited academics and postdocs from UKCRIC universities to attend in order to introduce them to C-DICE and gain their thoughts and ideas about how the postdoctoral programme should run in future.

The aims of the session were to:

Provide details about the benefits of working with C-DICE

Find out about synergies between UKCRIC and the Energy Research Accelerator (ERA)

The presentations included:

  • An welcome to the session from Professor Andy Dainty, Loughborough University
  • An overview of UKCRIC from Professor Willilam Powrie, University of Southampton
  • An introduction to the Energy Research Accelerator from Professor Martin Freer, Director of ERA, University of Birmingham
  • An introduction to C-DICE from Dr Kathryn North, C-DICE Director and Professor Sergio Cavalaro, Loughborough University

Delegates also broke out into World Cafe style workshops on Training, Development and Sandpits, where their discussions focused on areas including:

  • Research priority areas
  • Training opportunities
  • Interface with infrastructure, Cities and Energy
  • Barriers to participation
  • Impact and Collaboration
  • Engagement with postdocs and academics
