Organised by BBSRC, EPSRC and MRC.


EPSRC, BBSRC and MRC are holding three one day workshops to launch the cross-Council initiative Technology Touching Life (TTL) in June 2017. Venues are still to be confirmed, but dates and regions are:

  • 6 June (Midlands)
  • 16 June (London)
  • 20 June (Scotland)

The workshops will bring together researchers from across a broad range of relevant disciplines to discuss the research challenges and opportunities associated with Technology Touching Life.


The aims of the workshops are to:

  • share the vision and current plans for the Technology Touching Life initiative
  • seek input on key challenges and opportunities, as well as feedback on our proposed approach to implementation
  • facilitate cross-disciplinary networking and the formation of consortia for a Technology Touching Life community research networks call (to be launched May 2017)

How to register

The research councils would like to enable a broad range of researchers with interest in activities related to TTL to attend the workshops, and applications are welcome from a range of research backgrounds including engineering, physical, computational, health and life sciences, with particular encouragement for researchers with experience of working across these disciplinary fields.

Registration for the workshops is now closed.

As space at the workshops is limited, expressions of interest will be reviewed by an internal cross-Council selection process to ensure a broad representation of organisations and expertise. Your attendance will be confirmed by 16 May 2017.

Please note that application to attend will be regarded as confirmation of your availability to attend, and that the research councils are unable to pay travel and subsistence costs for workshop attendees.
