UNICAS sandpits are informal events where delegates can;
showcase their expertise
hear about the research projects of others
discuss specific research challenges & find solutions to these
network & establish new collaborations
Each delegate will be given the opportunity to present one-slide-in-one-minute to either highlight their expertise, research interest, potential area for collaboration and/or research problem.
Delegates will then be able to apply for funding for an interdisciplinary research project which results from the sandpit (the amount of funding available is dependent on which sandpit the delegate has attended see below).
