CEOI-ST Emerging Technologies Workshop - 30th April to 1st May 2014 – Leicester

This is a reminder that the UK Centre for Earth Observation Instrumentation and Space Technology will be holding the first EO Emerging Technology Challenge Workshop under the new banner of CEOI-ST – now is the time to reserve your place at this event. The workshop aims to explore scientific and commercial EO measurement challenges, and to present new sensor and instrumentation technology to the community to stimulate novel measurement concepts. Thus the audience will consist of EO scientists, commercial applications engineers and entrepreneurs, and technologists from academia and industry. We will examine all EO measurement domains.


Follow-on Fund and KE (Innovation) Projects Call

NERC is pleased to announce a parallel call:

Knowledge Exchange Projects (now called Innovation Projects)

The Innovation Projects (Formerly KE Projects) call is aimed at supporting activity which focuses on increasing the uptake of research output with little or no commercial return, but which will deliver impact. Activities can include products, models, tools, internships or secondments. The maximum amount that can be bid for is £125k (£100k NERC contribution). The grants are expected to start in October 2014 and last for 6 months.

Please click here for more information.

Follow-on Fund

The Follow-on Fund is a 'proof of concept' fund to support the commercialisation of ideas arising from research funded by the Natural Environment Research Council. The maximum amount that can be bid for is £125k (£100k NERC contribution). NERC's intention is that projects will run for 12 months or more. In order to apply for a Follow-on Fund it is now compulsory to have completed a preliminary Pathfinder application, or an equivalent piece of market research.

These calls will open around 5th May and the deadline for both will be the 6th June (TBC).

Job Opportunity: Cloud Physicist/Modeller

Job Opportunity: Cloud Physicist/Modeller

Please quote ref no: BAS 40/14

Closing date for applications: 13 Apr 2014

The British Antarctic Survey (BAS), part of the Natural Environment Research Council, aims to undertake a world-class programme of scientific research, and to sustain for the UK an active and influential regional presence and a leadership role in Antarctic affairs.

We are looking to appoint an atmospheric scientist to take part in a three year research programme into the microphysics of Antarctic clouds. The person appointed would take part in field programme involving an instrumented aircraft during the 2014/15 Antarctic summer. They will be responsible for running the Polar WRF model to provide forecast support for the project. After the field programme has been completed they will help to develop new cloud parameterisation for the WRF model based on the results of the field campaign. They will also consider how this parameterisation can be used in global climate models.
