WSI Research Stimulus Fund Call 2019-20


The focus of the Fund is on facilitating research collaborations that engage with non-academic partners.  The Fund aims to stimulate and pump-prime interdisciplinary research activity across Faculties that will ultimately lead to collaborations and the development of full research grant or contracts proposals with non-academic partners.  Projects arising will be externally-funded either directly, or the collaboration with the non-academic partner(s) will be leveraged through public funding sources, either national or international. 

The Web Science Institute has been granted an £80,000 Research Collaboration Stimulus Fund for 2019-20.
