  • Providing applicants with the remit and key requirements of the UKRMP2 call
  • Providing applicants with an overview of the requirements of the UKRMP2 application form and process
  • Offering an opportunity for applicants to raise questions with the UKRMP team

FAQs

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please contact Helen Page, scientificevents@headoffice.mrc.ac.uk with any queries.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

This is not necessary as a list of confirmed attendees will be held by the organiser.

1:1 Sessions/Surgery

The UKRMP team will hold 1:1 surgery sessions with consortia applicants in the afternoon. Please indicate when registering if you would be interested in attending a session and provide the names of any of your team who will join with you; a maximum of 4 people may attend each session. Please note that places are limited therefore, dependent on the number of requests received, surgeries will need to be managed to ensure a balanced representation.
