The range of disciplines will be large, from mathematics and statistics through the physical and biological sciences to psychology, philosophy and the humanities. The network will fund a number of small research “miniprojects” (up to £25k each in a number of schemes) and workshops, and run an annual conference involving academics and key partners from the both the public and private sectors and other research institutes and networks.

The project manager will be responsible for assisting with the set-up and running of the network and thereafter, provision of effective and efficient day-to-day administration and management. The post holder will work with the project Principal Investigator Peter Challenor at Exeter and the Co-Investigator Catherine Powell from the University of Manchester, along with a number of management, expert panel and advisory committees and members of the network from a range of UK institutions to ensure delivery of the project aims.
