University Research Administrators - Developing your EU funding skills: institutions, lobbying, funding and networks

On 8-9 December 2015 a Delegation of Research Administrators from London Higher Europe member institutions came to experience Brussels and the European quater first hand. London Higher organised a programme in cooperation with London's European Office in Brussels which took the delegation on a tour around the European Parliament and included sessions on the EU and EU institutions, developing EU funding skills as well as a presentation by UKRO on the Marie-Skłodowska Curie Programme.

Participants were from UCL Institute of Education, London South Bank University, Ravensbourne, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Royal Holloway University of London, SOAS, University of the Arts London, University of West London and the University of East London.

Based on positive positive feedback received from the participants, London Higher Europe will continue to organise capacity building events for staff members from member institutions.
