Habitability GRP URSS opportunities
This year the Habitability GRP is able to offer funding for URSS projects related to its research area. The GRP (Global Research Priority) is a network of researchers at Warwick who are interested in the conditions under which life survives and flourishes. Applications can come from students in any discipline that is eligible for URSS awards. You can read more about the GRP here: https://warwick.ac.uk/research/priorities/habitability/ . If you have a project in this area, there is no separate application to make – just apply to the URSS as usual and your application will be forwarded to the GRP.

Public engagement is about talking to people outside of the university about the work that goes on here. That could be something you've learnt on your course, or a piece of research you or someone in your department is working on or has already produced. The idea is to have a two way discussion with the people you choose to engage with, so you make space not only to tell them about the work you're an expert in - but also to give them a platform to share their responses, thoughts and perspectives.
As part of your URSS project you now have to complete some element of public engagement alongside doing your research project. You also have the option to do a solely public engagement focused project instead of a research project.
