SPOKES Wellcome Trust Funded Think Tank FAQs
The SPOKES Wellcome Trust Funded Think Tank (SWTFTT) is a group of ~10 early career researchers (ECRs) from the BIH research community who will work together over the period of one year to develop, conduct and complete a project that aims to improve the quality of translational research in Berlin. The SWTFTT team will receive a grant of up to 20.000 Euros for the development and execution of their project. Selection will be based on applicants’ engagement with improving research and project ideas. The funds allocated to the Think Tank may be used for organizing events, developing resources, communicating about the project and so on.
During the 12 months of the SWTFTT, participants will develop and roll out a project. The group will evaluate possible projects based on feasibility, common interest, and impact, before selecting one project to complete as a team. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to work closely with members of the QUEST Center, and provide valuable ECR perspective on other ongoing initiatives
