  • Free workshop invitation - Therapeutic Footwear for People with Diabetes Mellitus - Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th June 2022 Staffordshire University, Stoke on Trent, UK

    Staffordshire University (UK) and PFH Private Hochschule Göttingen (Germany) invite applications to participate in an early career researchers’ workshop titled “Meeting the Challenges of Providing Therapeutic Footwear for People with Diabetes Mellitus”, which will take place at Staffordshire University’s Stoke on Trent campus on Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th June 2022.

    The workshop aims to bring interdisciplinary researchers together who are passionate about this research area and who want to establish and grow a sustainable network to work together to meet the challenges which will be explored during the workshop. The workshop will include lectures and presentations, networking and career development sessions, and a challenge prize. Through the workshop, we will identify challenges and establish a network of researchers from a range of backgrounds who are passionate about improving the access to and quality of therapeutic footwear for these people. Participants will be supported to work together on future projects which will have a global impact to reduce mortality and morbidity and improve the quality of life for people with diabetes.

    Participants will be given the opportunity to create collaborations with other workshop participants and apply for a challenge prize to fund their proposed research idea.

    We welcome researchers from all backgrounds who have an interest in this topic to apply.

    The workshop is free, and travel and accommodation costs will be covered.

    The workshop is supported by a Researcher Links Challenge Grants UK-Germany Public Health workshops grant from the British Council.

    Participants are:
    • required to hold a research or academic position at a recognised research institution in the UK or Germany
    • expected to have a PhD or equivalent research experience
    • expected to have research experience in/or are interested in researching therapeutic footwear for people with Diabetes Mellitus.
    If you would like to participate in the workshop please complete the application form here. The application deadline is 5pm BST Fri 27 May 2022.

    If you have any questions, please contact Dr Aoife Healy (a.healy@staffs.ac.uk) or Professor Frank Braatz (braatz@pfh.de).
