Autumn 2018 Workshop

Nottingham hosted the first of our 'internal' workshops under the NIBS 2 brand from 17 to 19 September 2018.  It was great to welcome our new Post Docs and PhD students, and to devote some of the programme to discussing how we can move forward with engaging key policymakers/ regulators at future events.  Many thanks to all those who contributed. Here is the 2018 programme

Autumn 2017 Workshop

Our last NIBS workshop under NIBS 1 funding, took place 6 to 8 September 2017 at the Derby Conference Centre. This workshop had a dual purpose - as usual it enabled colleagues to feedback on work funded via the NIBS 'small grants' scheme, but also allowed time to look ahead and start planning for NIBS 2, which is due to commence 1 October 2017. A copy of the 2017 Autumn programme is available. 

Spring 2017 Workshop

From 3 to 5 May 2017 we held a workshop at the University of Warwick. This event was organised by researchers within the ESRC NIBS and Leverhulme 'Value' programmes, to help them connect, share and discuss issues with members of the policy and regulatory community, and others interested in their programmes of work. We received some good feedback after the workshop and you can  view a copy of the Spring 2017 programme.

Autumn 2016 Workshop

Our last NIBS workshop took place 14 to 16 September 2016 at the University of Warwick. As usual, this Autumn Workshops was aimed at NIBS funded colleagues and those working closely with us to deliver on the NIBS objectives. This event consisted of parallel sessions which provided an opportunity for colleagues to feedback on work which had been funded by the ESRC through the NIBS project, and some plenary sessions on key topics.  You can find the Autumn 2016 programme online.

Spring 2016 Workshop

Our last public conference took place from 4 to 6 April 2016 at the University of East Anglia, Norwich. The programme for Spring 2016 is available online Videos of our keynote lectures are now available:

Autumn 2015 Workshop

Our 'internal workshop' took pace from 9 to 11 September 2015 at The University of Nottingham. This was extremely well-attended by colleagues across the Network and was used partly to discuss NIBS outputs and work in progress and partly for discussion of proposals for work streams that might feature in a refunding bid to ESRC (should the opportunity arise, possibly later this year). View our Autumn 2015 programme here .   

Spring 2015 Workshop
