CNIE call for "Inspiration" Grants - September 2015
11 August 2015
A workshop was organised by the EPSRC "Frontier Engineering" Centre for Nature Inspired Engineering (CNIE) on 28 July 2015, to stimulate discussions between researchers of other Centres from across the UK, industrial partners, and CNIE researchers. These discussions led to lots of ideas for new projects that could benefit from a nature-inspired engineering approach.
A Call for "Inspiration" Grants was launched, which is open to all academic researchers in the UK (also those not present at the workshop). The aim of these short postdoctoral projects is to explore opportunities, in collaboration with CNIE researchers at UCL, to apply nature-inspired engineering within other projects and/or to obtain preliminary results prior to applying for a longer-term grant. The projects need to fit within one or more of the three themes of the CNIE. More details are included in the Call (attached pdf). Deadline for submissions: 4pm on Friday 18 September 2015.
