A Connect Harwell Workshop: UK & Horizon 2020 R&D Grant Funding – Maximising Your Chances of Success

Date: 17.10.2017

Time: 10:00 - 13:30

Location: Satellite Applications Catapult

MSC R&D will provide an interactive exploration of UK and Horizon 2020 grant funding during this Connect Harwell Workshop:

The Innovate UK and Horizon 2020 programmes are potentially very valuable sources of funding for innovative research and development projects, with grants ranging from a few hundred thousand to several million euros.

Not surprisingly, these programmes are very competitive and only the highest quality applications are successful.

Successful applications need to address, not only the innovative nature of the project, but also a number of other factors including market exploitation and impact.

This interactive workshop, run by MSC R&D – a leading provider of R&D funding and business growth services, with over 25 years’ experience in grant funding – will take an in-depth look at these programmes, using real examples, and in particular the key (and not always obvious) areas that need to be effectively addressed when making an application.

This workshop is a must for any company considering either an Innovate UK or Horizon 2020 grant as a source of R&D funding in the future. 

To find out more and to book your place visit https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/connect-harwell-workshop-tickets-31639217752.

Preferred business support suppliers who are running the workshops include Bluestream Recruitment, Databasix, EY, MSC R&D, Planet ITRichardsons, Royds Withy King, Sandler Training and Satellite Applications Catapult with new names are to be announced soon.

Talking Science - Pressing Fire on the most powerful laser in the world

Date: 24.11.2017

Time: 1330 & 1900

Location: Pickavance Theatre, Harwell Campus

Pressing FIRE on the most powerful laser in the world

Audience 14yrs +


Dr Ceri Brenner, STFC Central Laser Facility


RAL is home to two of the world’s most powerful lasers. They heat matter to millions of degrees in less than a trillionth of a second, rip apart the atom and generate the fourth state of matter, plasma. But why go to all this effort? These machines aren’t just a physicist’s playground. Super powerful lasers were developed for the
hugely inspiring quest of fusion energy as a sustainable, clean heat source for power stations. Now
they’re driving innovation in medical imaging, security inspection and nuclear waste management. Not bad for a fancy form of light.

Talking Science - Last day of the dinosaurs

Date: 26.01.2018

Time: 1330 and 1900

Location: Pickavance Lecture theatre, R22, RAL

Prof Phil Manning, Professor of Natural History, University of Manchester and STFC Public Engagement Fellow.

Dinosaurs dominated the earth for over 160 million years.  The cause behind the extinction of this remarkably successful group has been much debated, but often centres on an impact-triggered mass extinction event.  The global occurrence of a rare earth element, iridium, supports a comet/meterorite impact at the KPg (Cretaceous/Palaeogene) boundary.  A 180km diameter crater situated beneath the Yucatan Peninsula (Mexico) likely represents the main impact site.  However, unique evidence has surfaced that might shed new light on the last day of the dinosaurs.
