IAS Research Summit Sandpit (Online)

  • 22 May 2024
  • 12:00 noon - 1:30 pm
  • Virtual IAS - Zoom Meeting

Do you have an idea for an IAS Research Summit, or would you just like to learn more about how to become involved with our programmes and brainstorm potential topics with colleagues? Then bring your ideas, thoughts, and colleagues to one of our Sandpit Events this month!

IAS Research Summits are week-long events bringing leading international scholars – academics, policy-makers, artists, activists and/or public intellectuals – to the University to work with Loughborough colleagues in setting ambitious and innovative research agendas for the future.

IAS Research Summits should be focused on a theme, topic or idea that is timely, compelling, and potentially transformative. The theme should demonstrate a level of thought leadership that cuts across disciplines, enabling research activity that creates connections between the arts, humanities, social sciences and STEM subjects.

IAS Research Summits should provide a lasting legacy of outcomes and impact, including the development of new relationships and avenues for future collaborative research projects, co-publications and funding applications. Proposals should include tangible plans for legacy-building and indicate how activities undertaken during the summit will support this work.

Please note: If you want to propose a topic for an IAS Research Summit, you must attend one of these Sandpit sessions (NOT both) and then submit a Research Summit Application Form, found here on our website - Research Summits
