Call for HEIF Research Collaboration Stimulus Fund Proposals 2014/15

Published: 11 November 2014

SMMI has been granted £100,000 Research Collaboration Stimulus Fund to stimulate interactions with business and another users of University research.

This fund aims to pump prime Interdisciplinary Science & Enterprise research projects that will lead to the development of a full research grant with the involvement of an industrial partner. All applications should have, and/or clearly aspire to, an industrial collaboration. It is anticipated that each 10k invested by this scheme will lead to ~£500k of grant proposal.

This fund encourages interdisciplinary applications with the stated intent of collecting preliminary data for grant applications. The projects will exclude established, low risk, exercises and we encourage Early Career Researcher participation. Collaborations between SMMI Members from different academic units and faculties will be a prerequisite, as is the enterprise component. This Fund will further develop the philosophy of interdisciplinary research sponsored by the University and advocated by SMMI. Successful projects will be awarded funding within a range of £5K to £20K.

SMMI Members are invited to submit proposals for funding by the deadline of Thursday 4th December 2014
