Propose an IAS Workshop

Topics should be multi-disciplinary, bringing together expertise from across the breadth of our University to address major cross-cutting ideas that are important, relevant and timely.

The application process is simple and decisions will be made within a week. 

IAS Workshops will be organised and supported by the IAS Administration Team. Workshop leaders will be asked to provide images or suggestions for our website and a short post-workshop report.

 Workshops will:

  • normally be held on campus and typically run for one day;
  • attract a breadth of attendees from across our academic schools;
  • provide an opportunity to include key external stakeholders, with resource to cover costs.
