A new award......a chance to upskill yourself!
The inaugural Research and Development Award is being offered by the UKICRS to support a postgraduate or postdoctoral student in a research or development activity.

The nominated activity, which will be selected by the student, must be related to the general field of pharmaceutical sciences / controlled release drug delivery. The applicant must have the support of an academic supervisor, and, where relevant, a supervisor at the host academic institution.
How much is the award?
The award provides a maximum amount of £1000 for attendance of a relevant training course, workshop, or lab visit. The award can be used to cover course costs, reasonable travel expenses and accommodation, as applicable.
