  • 7 October – UKRI informational webinar
  • 11 October – UKCRIC Facilities Showcase
  • 21 October – Expressions of interest closing date

UKRI are looking to encourage a truly system of systems approach that will involve collaboration and the sharing of knowledge through utilising previous UKRI investments such as UKCRIC facilities. To support this approach an online showcase was held on Monday 11 October. The showcase provided an overview of UKCRIC and each of its facilities, followed by an opportunity to speak to facility representatives.

The showcase recording and pdfs of each of the presentations are available on request. Please contact us.
