Insigneo holds two annual events, the Insigneo Showcase and the General Assembly. The Insigneo Showcase provides a focus for Insigneo “friends” from funding agencies, regulatory agencies, industry, other academic groups in UK and worldwide to meet and see first-hand the latest innovations produced by our institute.

The General Assembly provides an open forum for members and researchers to hear from Insigneo’s Board of Directors, ask questions and network.

In addition, members have the opportunity to invite and host speakers as part of the Insigneo seminar programme.

Specific funding calls

Opportunities for members and associate members to apply for internal research funding (eg CASE studentships and bridging funds for PhD students/post-docs).
