Scottish Research Pools, the University of Luxembourg and other partner institutions have joined together to form European Crucible, an international research collaboration event gathering together Scottish future research leaders with their counterparts from across Europe.
Recognising the importance of international research collaboration, and following the success of Scottish Crucible over the past decade, this European Crucible will create a new network for research leaders between Scotland and Europe, and enable international collaboration on interdisciplinary research and innovation topics with additional engagement with policy-makers and industry.
This first European Crucible event will take place in Luxembourg on 6 and 7 May 2020, and will have an emphasis on innovative collaborations at the interfaces between Life Sciences and other disciplines. Early-mid career research leaders from life, physical, engineering, computational, mathematical, environmental and social sciences, arts and humanities are invited to apply for a place on the highly intensive and interactive two-day event.
The deadline to apply is 10am on Monday 9 March 2020, for Scottish participants – all applicants will be informed of the result of the application process in mid-March. For European participants, there is a later application deadline of 10am on Wednesday 18 March 2020 (and all applicants will be informed of the result of the application process by the end of March).
