Weekly Round-up #122
Welcome to VALIDATE Weekly Round-up #122 - a round up of news and opportunities for VALIDATE Members.
Two Important Surveys
To ensure that the network has its say in the future of two major research funders we encourage VALIDATE members to participate in two very important surveys:
- MRC International Partnerships Survey 2020: The MRC is planning its approach to international partnerships for the next 5 years and is seeking input from key stakeholders. The survey is open to biomedical/health researchers at PI/Co-I/Fellow level and senior research managers and facilitators. The deadline for completion of the survey is 21 June 2020.
- BBSRC Use of Models in Research Survey: The BBSRC is inviting researchers from all disciplines to provide their opinions and insight into the types of models currently used in research and those that might be used in future as part of their Use of Models in Research Survey. The deadline for this survey is 28 June 2020.

Those of you who are connected with VALIDATE on LinkedIn may have noticed that we have been posting more on this platform to give you another way to easily keep up to date on all the news in our research field. This is something we will be further increased, as LinkedIn is a great tool for connecting with our members and for you, our members, to connect with each other. If you haven't already done so, do connect with us on LinkedIn, as well as with other VALIDATE members you know.
