New funding opportunity
New funding opportunity
The Library, working with Research & Innovation, has invited the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) to the University of Salford to present an afternoon workshop about data management planning for your grant applications, and managing your data throughout the project lifecycle. This workshop has been designed around the needs of our academic staff who are actively engaged in research projects, or developing project bids.
Research Councils, the EU Commission and many other funding bodies are increasingly requiring evidence of adequate and appropriate provisions for research data management (RDM) & storage in new grant funding applications.
A three day writing retreat, led by Professor Brenda Cooper

Open to all disciplines and all career stages, from lecturer to professor levels
We would like to cordially invite academic staff to take part in a three day writing retreat scheduled for July 2014. The retreat is dedicated to the completion of a designated work-in-progress. It will provide colleagues with space outside of work to devote to completing this work and an opportunity to receive feedback from both their peers and from external consultant Prof Brenda Cooper.
The University has set up an Open Access Support Scheme to help you make your peer reviewed journal articles Open Access by way of paying an Article Processing Charge (APC) to the publisher.
This way you will be able to benefit from immediate, unrestricted access to the final published version of your paper.

Co-hosted by the University of Bristol, British Council and the UK Higher Education International Unit, the forum brings together UK leaders of higher education sector, industry and government departments to join the debate with 25 senior leaders and managers from Chinese Universities and government departments. This is the fifth time that British Council hosts UK-China Higher Education Forum following the success of the previous four at Derby, York, Cardiff and Nottingham respectively in the past years.
