As part of the innovative monitoring approaches funding call, NERC invites applicants to participate in interactive brokerage events to learn more about the funding call and to network and develop ideas for related innovation projects.

Two events will be held, bringing together academics with 'end-user' representatives from across the infrastructure, oil & gas and offshore renewable energy sectors:

  • 26 April 2017 - British Geological Survey, The Lyell Centre, Edinburgh
  • 5 May 2017 - National Oceanography Centre, Southampton

Applicants must express their interest to participate and will receive a formal invitation confirming attendance.

How do I apply?

To submit your expression of interest to attend, please select the appropriate form:

For this event, 'end-users' are defined as private, public, or third sector organisations or institutions, private industry, public bodies (such as government departments, local government, regulatory authorities, etc), non-governmental organisations or charities.

We regret that we are unable to offer a place at the brokerage events to everyone who submits an expression of interest. The participant selection panel will seek to ensure that a balance of expertise is present at the events. Attendance is strongly encouraged but not a pre-requisite for the submission of proposals to this call. Please note that the submission of an expression of interest will be taken as a definite commitment to attend.

The closing date for expressions of interest was 16:00 on 24 March 2017.

Registration has now closed. However we have a waiting list for 'End-users'. If you are an 'End-user' and would like to be added to the waiting list please use the appropriate link above and fill in the form.

NERC will aim to notify successful applicants to the brokerage event by 31 March 2017.
