Technology Touching Life Regional Workshops

Venue: Various Locations

Sorry, this event has now ended.

EPSRC, BBSRC and MRC are holding three one day workshops to launch the cross council initiative Technology Touching Life (TTL) in June 2016. Venues are still to be confirmed, but dates and regions are:

6th June - Midlands

16th June - London

20th June - Scotland

TTL is a joint activity between BBSRC, EPSRC and MRC to foster interdisciplinary research into innovative, and potentially disruptive, technological capabilities that will drive world-leading basic health and life sciences discovery research.

The workshops will bring together researchers from across a broad range of relevant disciplines to discuss the research challenges and opportunities associated with Technology Touching Life.

The aims of the workshops are to:

  • Share the vision and current plans for the TTL initiative
  • Seek input on key challenges and opportunities, as well as feedback on our proposed approach to implementation
  • Facilitate cross-disciplinary networking and the formation of consortia for a Technology Touching Life community research networks call (to be launched May 2017)

The research councils would like to enable a broad range of researchers with interest in activities related to TTL to attend the workshops, and applications are welcome from a broad range of research backgrounds including engineering, physical, computational, health and life sciences, with particular encouragement for researchers with experience of working across these disciplinary fields.
