iPACT Connect Day – North Norfolk 11 & 12 June


11 June 2024


12 June 2024
Links Country Park Hotel, West Runton, North Norfolk.

Come to the stunning coastline of North Norfolk to hear the final reports from the iPACT Pilot projects, take part in discussions about future funding opportunities and a workshop on research impact with other network members.

This is the second of three in-person Connect days for the iPACT network to be held across the UK with iPACT partner Universities.

The event will run from 12.00pm on 11th June to 2.30pm on 12th June including a welcome lunch and networking dinner and overnight stay at the Links Country Park Hotel, West Runton, North Norfolk.

The first session will showcase each of the research groups and their Pilot Project final results and impacts. This is expected to comprise a major part of each presentation. However, each group is also asked to cover briefly (i) further work planned as following the completion the Pilot; (ii) thoughts on obtaining funding using results from the Pilot project; (iii) what they would like from the Network+ in terms of facilitating further stakeholder engagement; (iv) thoughts on dissemination of the outputs to stakeholders and the public, via the iPACT Network+.

It is anticipated that the workshops on 12th June will take the form of separate discussions, focusing mainly on (i) to (iii) above. A final plenary discussion bringing together thoughts on (iv) and common next steps at the end of afternoon.

This event is fully subsidized for iPACT Network members and our guests but has limited spaces so booking is required.

Places are limited so please apply to attend by 17th May using this form https://forms.office.com/e/QuqdPc6yGk
