Developing a broader pool of academics and partners

We are keen to develop and expand engagement between developing countries and Cambridge researchers.  We run an annual engagement meetings  to connect researchers across the Cambridge campus- CID Meeting of Minds, and run smaller scale capacity building events as a quarterly series- Infectious Diseases NeXt.

Just over researchers and practitioners have attended each of the events from a variety of disciplines, departments and schools,  from different countries, and from a mix of academic and non-academic organisations (e.g. non-governmental organisations; charities; policy makers; international funders).

Cambridge Infectious Diseases offers a knowledge exchange platform for you to connect with network members thru different types of collaborative joint ventures, most commonly;

Consultation - we can provide as-needed interaction/administrative support on a specific grant document, process or activity to get input/support, feedback or advice. In particular the coordinator can help identify potential collaborators from other disciplines, and provide support on developing impact activities/statements.

Cross-Cambridge Funding Bids - We lead and support major interdisciplinary research funding proposals. By identifying and discussing emerging infectious diseases challenges through our workshops and Infectious Diseases NeXt series/ seminars, we help lay the groundwork for quick responses to funding calls. In particular we can assist with developing Impact summaries and Pathways to Impact, JES submissions X5.

Conveningwe can create opportunities for and facilitate connections among network members to enable their further engagement, from small focus group meetings to larger scale conferences.

If you would like to propose an event, or have help with a cross-Cambridge funding bid, please contact the Coordinator directly or use this form  Cross CID Engagement Form.

Cambridge University videoconferencing services

Videoconferencing can be an excellent alternative to attending meetings in person, saving carbon emissions, time, and money. If you have an upcoming meeting that requires you to travel, consider using the Cambridge University videoconferencing services. The Cisco video conference system also available for staff to use at Greenwich House, the Old Schools, the Roger Needham Building, 17 Mill Lane and Engineering. Finally, staff can arrange meetings, training and workshops on their own PC using Cisco Jabber and WebEx. Contact UIS to discuss which option best suits your needs.
