Our project grants are intended to provide funds for the employment of suitably qualified staff and the purchase of essential equipment and consumables for projects lasting up to 3 years that address the objectives outlined above. Please note that we will not contribute towards the cost of tenured posts, nor can we contribute towards institutional overheads. The maximum amount that can be applied for is up to £350,000 for applications from a single institution, or more for collaborations involving more than one institution, though most grants will be for less than this.
Proposals must be submitted by a UK academic institution (university, hospital or research institute). We will consider funding international collaborations where researchers from a UK institution play a leading role. If a grant is awarded to such a collaboration, the UK institution must take overall responsibility for management of the project and must undertake to administer the funding.
Please note that we will accept no more than two proposals from a single research group.
The first stage is a preliminary proposal which must be submitted using our online grants portal, following the link below. Preliminary proposals are reviewed by our Scientific Advisory Panel who decide which proposals to put through to the second stage. Decisions are based on the perceived NEED of the proposed research, the potential IMPACT of the proposed research and the capacity of the research team to deliver the proposed research.
Second stage applications will be subject to full, external peer review to assess the scientific quality of the detailed research proposal.
The anticipated timeline is as follows but please note that these dates may be subject to change:
