The event should involve postgraduate research students from at least two of the following faculties: LUBS, ESSL, Arts Humanities & Cultures.    The funding for the event is provided in order to give applicants the opportunity to develop their transferable skills. These skills include bidding for funding, project and people management, budget management, networking, teamworking etc.  The event should also provide opportunities for the participants to develop their transferable skills. Proposals must demonstrate how the event develops transferable skills in the participants and in the organising team. 

Funding of up to £500 is available.   Awards will be made on a competitive basis: applications which detail activities that develop the transferable skills of all participants in proposed events will be looked on most favourably for funding.
