Turing-Manchester Sandpit Events

Through our partnership with the Alan Turing Institute, the Institute of Data Science and AI, which delivers activity for the Data Science and AI Digital Futures theme, is hosting three ‘sandpit’ events in Autumn/Winter 2021/22.

These sandpits are an opportunity for researchers, private, public and third sector to come together and devise research proposals for projects on a range of data science and AI-related topics. A number of proposals developed at the sandpits will be awarded funding to cover research costs for six-month feasibility studies led by a University of Manchester researcher.
