Funding area: Career Development
A leadership and development programme for Scotland’s research leaders of the future, Scottish Crucible is for early career researchers and aims to provide participants with the time and space to see the bigger picture. Scottish Crucible will encourage researchers to:
- Put their roles into a wider societal context – by understanding the importance of engaging with the public and the media, and thinking about the social and technical challenges facing society;
- Share perspectives and build relationships which may lead to interdisciplinary collaborations now or in the future;
- Think creatively and understand the skills and attitudes likely to make research more innovative.
Scottish Crucible is a series of three residential meetings (Labs), held over three months, each lasting two days. Each Lab will include a range of respected speakers, facilitated break-out groups, seminars and skills sessions. Once awarded a place on Scottish Crucible, all residential costs will be covered, including accommodation and catering; plus costs for all sessions and travel costs to and from your home in Scotland to the location of each Crucible Lab (up to a value of £100.00 per return journey).
