MOHE Workshop (Report)
77 people registered to attend this workshop (FASS:14, Engineering:42 , Science:21) which, as Andy pointed out was divisible by 7, which made life a lot easier for planning purposes!.The number of people who attended was (FASS:26, Engineering:39, Science:19)=84. This is probably the first time that we have had more people turn up to an event than actually registered, so thank you for that.The objective of the day was to get people to register their interest in submitting an xRGS proposal. The number of interests we received was (FASS:7, Engineering:5 , Science:7)=19.
We will now work with these people in order to (hopefully) get the proposal largely written up by the end of the year. The projects will undergo a number of QA checks. This is not meant to be critical, but to get the proposal in the best possible shape before it is submitted.
In order to help your research faculty committees plan their workload, please ensure (if not done so already) to register your intention to submit a proposal (19 is good, but we could do with more!) with Andy by next Friday (26th Oct 2012).
We think that this was very worthwhile event (and plan to do a similar thing next year). It would not have been possible without the hard work of many people. I will not name them here (as there is the possibility of missing somebody, and we have thanked them in other emails), but I would like to express all our thanks to Andy for coordinating this event.
We will provide more details soon, including the advice and guidance from our guest speaker (we are just awaiting the photographs and the video of the lecture).
