ORION is a EU funded project to facilitate Open Science and Responsible Research and Innovation in the Babraham Institute and other European research funding and performing organisations. Open Science is about making research more accessible, which is increasingly important for improving the quality of research and for assessing it. Whether citizen or researcher, this project needs you. Get involved!
Our research collaborations take many shapes and forms, often looking beyond academic research into industry or the clinic. The value of these partnerships in driving innovative and effective research progress is becoming increasingly apparent and supporting more partnerships like this is a vital part of our work to maximise the impact of the Institute’s research.
In this latest blog, clinician Dr Gavin Pettigrew tells our Knowledge Exchange Manager, how a collaboration with the Linterman lab has resulted in some surprising and interesting discoveries with potential benefits for scientists, doctors and patients.
Not surprisingly, the recurring theme that ran through the recent UKRO conference, that brings together European Liaison Officers from across the UK to talk about the EU’s science programme Horizon 2020, was Brexit. In her Blog, International Grants Manager, Dr Cheryl Smythe, explains why its important to make the most of current EU funded schemes.
