The STFC stand will also be running Research Grants 'Surgeries' on Thursday 29th March between 12.30 and 2.00pm, and again from 3:30 to 4:30pm. This is your chance to meet the Astronomy Grants Panel chair (Professor Andy Lawrence, Edinburgh), STFC Head of Astronomy (Dr Colin Vincent) and Astronomy Grants Manager (Kim Burchell) from STFC and put to them any questions you have about applying for research grants, grant awards, grant administration and grants opportunities. No need to book, just turn up and talk.
