Climate change and health: Societal vulnerabilities and opportunities
Date: Wednesday 14 July 2021
Featuring guest speakers, networking across GW4 institution and discussions around key themes in Climate and Health, this workshop asked 'How can we make a difference'? It presented an opportunity for researchers from the GW4 Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter to meet and discuss potential collaboration at the intersection of Climate Change and Health research. The theme was intentionally broad to encourage ideas that combine perspectives from diverse disciplines, including (but not limited to) the arts and humanities, social sciences, and STEM. Participants of the workshop are eligible to apply for dedicated EPSRC Impact Acceleration Accounts (IAA) funding for cross-institutional projects (up to £5k for each institution). Projects must have the potential for impact, include research staff from at least 2 GW4 institutions, preferably inter-disciplinary, and must build on previous EPSRC-funded research. More details here Project ideas that fall outside the scope of IAA funding, may want to consider GW4 Generator Fund community-building grants (call likely to open Nov 2021). The event was funded by the EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) at the GW4 Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter.
