Dear Colleagues and Team Leaders, we are seeking an expression of interest to participate in the 2017 SPARQ-ed program.
We need your group to provide a research project that can be delivered in the form of a 5-day immersion program (shorter formats are also possible). During the first day and last day we would like the Lead Researcher to deliver an introductory and summation talk, and tutors from your group to oversee the delivery of the project at the SPARQ-ed laboratory. This is a great opportunity for the young researchers to practice their science communication skills in a very friendly environment.
SPARQ-ed will cover all expenses and administration duties, offer hands-on technical support, and a small token of appreciation to the tutors involved.
Looking forward to hearing from you. We are aiming to expand the program in 2017 and provide up to eight, 5-day immersion projects starting in April 2017.
