TRI Workshops, Events and Training

Through MRC, BBSRC and Wellcome funding and coordinated through the TRI and MVLS Innovation, Engagement and Enterprise Teams, we are investing in more workshops and training for early career researchers through to senior research staff.

Recipients of awards (such as Wellcome Translational Partnership Awards, MRC and BBSRC Impact Accelerator Awards (IAA)) are encouraged to attend any relevant training programmes, but applications/attendance from all researchers are welcome.
