SUPA offers funding to support its scientists in organising meetings and events, bringing distinguished visitors to Scotland and to support short research visits by early careers scientists (PECRE). We also have funding to support researchers in building networks to apply for European funding (PEER).

We have committed our current tranche of funding for PEER and are awaiting news of future PECRE funds.

Recently funded:

  • SCAM 2017
  • Young Atom Opticians 2018
  • IoP Nuclear Physics Conference 2018
  • Workshop "The Aunatum to Classical Transition”
  • Young Theorists’ Forum 10
  • "Photonics meets real world applications": Joint CDTs careers workshop (Oct 2018)
  • SCOPE - 10th anniversary and Careers Workshop (Nov 2018)

2018 PECRE visits include:

Beijing Super-resolution images of the flagella of Escherichia coli
Barcelona Low Gain Avalanche Detectors (LGAD) for particle physics and synchrotron applications
Madrid Warm Inflation
Shanghai Compressive imaging in sequentially-timed all optical systems
Madrid Interplay between electron-electron and exciton-photon correlations in a semiconductor
Heidelberg Dynamical modeling of galaxies
Montreal Calculating the leading contributions to the scattering of two highly energetic partons
Paris Multispectral TM acquisition using Hyper-Spectral Imaging

2017 PECRE visits include:

Rome measuring and characterising random lasing on inhomogeneous random media
Beijing ivestigating use of new imaging techniques using spinning disc confocal microscopy
Centre Nacional de Microelectronica (CNM), Barcelona learning new techniques for Low Gain Avalanche Detectors.
Shanghai investigating the behaviour of hot dense hydrogen at conditions above 250 GPa (2.5 MAtm) and above 600 K, learning the techniques used in just a handful of research labs.
Boston multiple collaborations including on the quantum supremacy of heat engines.
