Sustainability Sandpit

The Sustainability sandpit is a two-day event scheduled to take place from 14.00 to 16.00 on Weds 17 and Thurs 18 November. Please note that this is one event across two days and participants are expected to attend on both days.

We are keen to facilitate a sandpit where a range of stakeholders come together to discuss issues and potential solutions around sustainability in which Data Science and Artificial Intelligence can play a key role.

Participants will develop proposals over the two days and our review panel will award funding for a number of six-month feasibility studies (~£10-15k per successful proposal).

Participants will have an opportunity suggest potential topics in the build up to the event. This input will be reviewed and sorted before the event and will help to define the starting point for proposal discussions.

Please note that due to the nature of this funding, each funded project must be led by a researcher from The University of Manchester.

Intellectual Property rights will be subject to terms and conditions as agreed between the Alan Turing Institute and The University of Manchester.

To attend this event, please register via eventbrite.

Please share this invitation with suitable collaborators.
