The EREBUS project is a business research partnership between Aston, Birmingham and Warwick universities. Its role is to assist in the development of West Midlands’ SMEs, operating in the Finance, Energy and Health Technologies sectors, to build innovation and improve business performance.
The first EREBUS CASE Award has now been agreed at Aston. The investigators are Helen Shipton (ABS) and Louise Knight (EAS). It is with the Purchasing And Supply Agency (PASA) for the NHS, who will be looking at network learning within the organisation. Other projects have also been established at the partner Universities of Warwick and Birmingham. Remember, you too can benefit from the wider benefits of EREBUS Cluster, and keep the FEC from your project in your PASA.
There are a number of EREBUS KTP and CASE Awards still available. The duration of KTPs is two years while CASE awards are three. If you require information on the qualification criteria and guidance on how to apply for an EREBUS award, contact Ben Clegg or visit www.EREBUS-cbc.com.
Please note that the deadline for the completion of EREBUS KTPs and CASE Awards is 2012.
