Networked Society Institute (NSI) are hosting a workshop for researchers interested in applying for its 2018 seed funding round. The NSI Seed Funding round seeks to catalyse new innovative interdisciplinary projects to further our research agenda.

The workshop allows researchers to share ideas and make connections with potential collaborators to better facilitate the interdisciplinary research seed funding applications.

"I really appreciate the way that the process has been run, the constant encouragement to talk about our proposed projects with the NSI team, and the way that the collaborations were initiated. A great example of how ideas collide."

- Dr Kate Lee, NSI Seed Funding Workshop attendee 2016, Chief Investigator of Social Networks and Urban Green Spaces
