Independent of the OTLip18 Symposium, we are also inviting submissions for the Off The Lip 2018 grant 'writeshop' centred around multiple disciplinary endeavours (broadly) or interdisciplinarity as a topic or as a method/practise, and Cognitive Innovation.
We invite the submission of a 2,000-character summary of grant ideas, to gain a quick overview of all proposals. For the purposes of this writeshop, we ask that you tailor your proposal for a Marie Curie Individual Fellowship, which offers a rigorous format that can be extended to other potential grant applications. You may find it useful to consult other guides to writing successful Marie Curie grants, an example is linked at the events website. Grant ideas/proposals can be in any stage of development, but we encourage the inclusion of a motivational letter describing what prospective participants aim to derive from the two days, as this will allow us to suggest working groups in advance.
Staff and postgraduate students interested in this workshop are invited to join us by emailing OTLip18@CogNovo.org.
The writeshop is organised by CogNovo research fellows. CogNovo was an Innovative Doctoral Programme, funded by the EU Marie Curie initiative and the University, to foster research training in the emerging field of Cognitive Innovation. CogNovo ran between 2013 and 2017 at the University to offer transdisciplinary training combining scientific studies of the neural correlates and mechanisms of creativity, with investigations into the role of creativity in human cognition, and their application in sustainable technological and social innovation.
