2019 saw the Researcher Network launch a new initiative; a “Hub Researcher Network Award”, aimed at Postdocs and research students to support small research projects. These aim to provide the very first steps towards independence for early-career researchers. The call was well received amongst the Researcher Network community, with a response of 8 applications from 5 different universities. The projects were reviewed by the researchers themselves and a panel with significant researcher experience. Proposals were required to focus on improving the Manufacturing of fibre reinforced polymer composites, and funding was available for up to three proposals of up to £5,000 each.
The following projects were successfully awarded funding:
A second call for Hub Researcher Network Awards was launched in August 2021. Applications from students and postdoctoral researchers from the universities which hold Hub membership are eligible to apply for the award. For more information and how to apply for the award click here.
Events are regularly organised for the Researchers Network, which are centred around professional and knowledge exchange activities, but also include a large amount of social engagement.
Some highlights of the Researchers Network events include: a lab workshop at Nottingham with elements of competition between teams; a demonstration of advanced composite manufacturing technologies at University of Bristol.
