We are hosting a virtual showcase event on 14 January 2021, where attendees will learn about the research conducted by the SPRITE+ Challenge Working Groups and Short Project Teams. As well as opportunities for discussion and networking, we will have a set of ‘research snapshots’: a lightning talk plus a poster. This event will provide a platform for academics and stakeholders from government, law enforcement and business to discuss recent research findings, follow on activities and impact generation.
Virtual poster presentations will be an integral part of the SPRITE+ Showcase. Through their posters and accompanying lightning talks, presenters will have the opportunity to share a snapshot of their research with the SPRITE+ community including academic experts, stakeholders and Project Partners.
Successful applicants will be given their own interactive page on the showcase platform in which they will have the opportunity to:
We are also offering a prize for the best poster, judged by a panel, with input from showcase attendees. The winner will receive a funded place to attend our Expert Fellows meeting in Belfast (30 June – 1 July, including UK travel, accommodation, and dinner), and be featured on our blog. If the prize winner is a SPRITE+ Expert Fellow (who is already eligible for a funded place), they will be able to allocate the funded place to a PhD student or ECR colleague of their choice.
Following the showcase, posters will be published on the main SPRITE+ website and featured in our Twitter feed, and newsletter.
Applications are open to academic and non-academic SPRITE+ Members or Expert Fellows from any disciplinary background. We particularly encourage applications from Early Career Researchers (PhD students, post-doc RA, or first position lecturers, within 5 years of PhD) and those working outside the Higher Education sector, to reflect the diversity of SPRITE+ membership.
