About this event

The Horizons Institute was established to do things differently and provides a shared platform for responding to global challenges. Together, through our Challenge Theme Networks, we aim to respond to societal, scientific, or technological challenges of global significance by supporting University of Leeds researchers to establish proactive and enthusiastic interdisciplinary networks that:

*bring researchers together from across the University to collaborate in the development of ideas

*share understanding, evidence-based knowledge, and data

*build and strengthen capacity in interdisciplinary skills and leadership

*strengthen research impact by increasing its influence in local, national, and global policy development

*communicate the depth and breadth of their research to local, national, and global audiences

We've launched a call for you to submit an idea for an interdisciplinary research network that you would like to establish in collaboration with others from across the University of Leeds, and beyond. We're holding two application surgeries during the application period to answer questions and outline what we are looking for in the call

Thursday, 13 October, 10.30–11.30am (online, Microsoft Teams)

Wednesday, 2 November, 1.30–2.30pm (on campus, location tbc)
