After the event, potential collaborators will be invited to submit a short grant proposal, which must include at least one Aston Life & Health Sciences researcher. The proposals will be reviewed by an invited panel of academics and a series of prizes will be awarded:

  • Prizes of £100 (1st), £50 (2nd) and £25 (3rd) for the best posters displayed on the day.
