Developing novel, interdisciplinary, research proposals is a key objective for many universities. However, it can be difficult to engage a diverse
community of researchers, and help them generate really creative ideas. Fortunately, Knowinnovation has spent the last decade developing a proven approach to interdisciplinary creativity. We used our expertise to cocreate the Sandpit process – used by RCUK, NSF, NASA, and numerous universities around the world. We are now focusing on training Research Development professionals in order to help them facilitate the creation of award winning proposals. We offer a range of training programmes, as well as event facilitation.
