These are our suggested packages and we are open to discussions with potential partners about where they would like to focus their sponsorship (e.g. the Hack Day or the Collaborative Ideas). We are very happy to discuss bespoke packages with interested partners.

Benefits marked with a single asterisk (*) are subject to contract date to mitigate the risk of time-intensive benefits needing to be implemented close to the event date or in the case of the programme having already been finalised.

 

Scholarship

To increase the accessibility to and diversity of CW22, we are looking for ways to offer free registration to students, early career academics or marginalised community members who may not be able to attend otherwise. If you are interested in sponsoring participation costs for (a set number of) participants, please get in contact. Organisations providing scholarships will have their logo on the Sponsors Page and receive thanks in all reporting.
