What is TCES Net?

TCES Net enables you, as TCES members, to apply for funding to run small networking events to:

  • Maintain links and collaborative networks throughout the year
  • Tell people in the community about the work you’re doing, and find out about research in other groups
  • Engage with other stakeholders, including industrial partners and policy makers
  • Disseminate your research to a wider audience – for example, school children and lay societies

What’s on offer and what are the conditions?

  • We can fund up to £400 per meeting up to a maximum of three meetings per year
  • These meetings must be held between September and May (i.e. not during the summer when the annual conference is held)
  • They can centre on any focussed research theme relevant to TCES community – see here for our charter
  • Registration must be free, but attendees are expected to cover the cost of their transport
  • It is expected that meetings should last half a day
  • Meetings open to all (and not just TCES members)
  • Meetings must be badged and advertised as TCES Net meetings

How do I apply?

How are applications judged?

  • The TCES committee will judge applications on several criteria:
    • Organisation, planning and likelihood of attracting a significant number of attendees
    • Potential impact beyond the TCES community
    • Value for money – co-funding through industrial sponsorship is especially welcome
    • Involvement of early career researchers (PhD and research fellows) in the application
