The principal purpose of a National Telford Institute Advanced Research Workshop is to support pan-Scottish collaborative research activity that would not otherwise have taken place, by providing funding to convene meetings of Scottish-based researchers to review the state-of-the-art of a specialised research topic of common interest and to stimulate thereby the formation of new pan-Scottish research groups to pursue the topic in question through concerted action. Each Workshop will normally have a Director and one or more co-Directors drawn from at least two Scottish universities. A pan-Scottish dimension must be demonstrated, with Workshop participants being drawn from more than one Research Partnership. The papers presented at the Workshop will be collected together as a record of the event and published online on the NTI web site. To qualify for funding, each Workshop must have a clearly identified outcome that will advance pan-Scottish research collaboration.
