NESTA champions collaboration across sciences
Article Type: Food Facts From: Nutrition & Food Science, Volume 38, Issue 3.
NESTA is calling for talented early career researchers from across the world of science to enter its Crucible programme, which aims to stimulate collaborative new projects by bringing together up-and-coming researchers from different disciplines to develop new ideas and explore the wider potential of their work.
Now in its fifth year, Crucible is open to researchers working in science, technology, engineering, medicine, science policy, and social science who are at an early stage in their career. Applicants can be post-doctoral researchers, recently appointed lecturers or researchers working in industry, a research institute or similar. As well as evidence of an interest in collaborating with researchers from other disciplines, NESTA is looking for candidates with an interest in science and society or science policy, and proven involvement in areas beyond their research such as working to improve public engagement with science, writing for non-specialist audiences or participating in a special interest group.
