A. UKFN MESSAGES 

FROM: Nick Daish, 12/9/19
SUBJECT: UKFN photo/video competition #6 - results 

Congratulations to the winners of our 6th photo/video competition: 

 	* Photo winners are Henry Ng & Rob Poole (University of Liverpool)
with 'Rod climbing: The Weissenberg Effect' [1]
 	* Video winner is Lyes Kahouadji (Imperial College London) with
'Fabulous, flowing, and folding fountain of chocolate' [2]

There will be another competition in the near future - watch this space!


FROM: Nick Daish, 12/9/19
SUBJECT: SIGs - 3rd call for proposals (Final Repeat) 

The UKFN Executive Committee has agreed to fund two additional Special
Interest Groups. They must be distinct from the SIGs that have been
funded to date (see https://fluids.ac.uk/sig). 

Each successful SIG will be allocated £2,000, to be used to fund a
Kick-off meeting. Please note funding is through reimbursement of the
meeting costs, rather than an up-front payment: the meeting host pays,
and then invoices UKFN for reimbursement afterwards. Eligible expenses
are: 

- Venue hire
- Catering
- Accommodation
- Travel 

THE MEETING MUST HAVE BEEN COMPLETED BY 31 JANUARY 2020, and the invoice
for reimbursement received by 15 February 2020.  

Applications should consist of a proposal using the template below, and
should be emailed to sig at fluids.ac.uk by FRIDAY 20 SEPTEMBER 2019. The
results will be announced by 30 September 2019, and the SIGs chosen will
formally start on 1 October 2019. 

Please send any questions to sig at fluids.ac.uk. 

PROPOSAL FORMAT 

1. SIG title 

2. Description of SIG (up to 300 words, excluding titles): 

a. Subject and scope
b. Objectives 

3. Proposed members 

Please list the researchers who will participate, their affiliation, and
their broad area of expertise. At least three academic institutions
should take part. For SIGs with industrial involvement, we would suggest
typically three participants from industry. Please nominate a SIG
leader, who will be the point of contact with UKFN, and a co-leader from
a different organization. 

4. Contact details 

Please give the name, affiliation (institution and department) and email
address of the proposed leader and co-leader.

FROM: Nick Daish, 12/9/19
SUBJECT: EPSRC funding call for Engineering Engagement Champions 

'The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has up
to £1.5 million available through the Engineering Theme to provide
bespoke support to EPSRC researchers in our community to undertake
public engagement activities in order to inspire, and interact with the
public as well as attract them to Engineering and Physical Sciences. 

'£1.5m is available to support up to 10 Champions through this call.
Applicants must have been named on an EPSRC grant within the last 5
years. Applications are invited from all career stages. 

'It is expected that applicants will be active researchers in
engineering and physical sciences, however this funding is to support
public engagement activities to sit alongside core research. These
activities could include, but are not limited to, engagement with
individuals of particular protected characteristics who may be
underrepresented in engineering, education sector stakeholders or
government representatives.' 

Further details are available at
https://epsrc.ukri.org/funding/calls/engineering-engagement-champions-pilot/.
THE CLOSING DATE FOR PROPOSALS IS 7 NOVEMBER 2019.
