CDE Project Board meeting 5th September 2017
The CDE Project Board met on 5th September and was attended by staff, student representatives and Jason Morgan from the EPSRC. Among its decisions, the Board agreed to work on increasing cohort building activities and to hold more events outside of Bath and Bournemouth. We agreed that attendance at some events will be mandatory to ensure high attendance and greater networking. The next event will be held this December in association with CVMP 2017 in London. It was also noted that many industrial supervisors remain unaware that the CDE is able to fund internationalisation activities. Please remember that the CDE can fund overseas visits for students of longer than a month up to a cost of £5,000. If you think this will benefit your research or training, get in touch!
