The Innovation Community (IC) from the Research Lifecycle Programme are holding an innovation competition to give researchers the opportunity to kick-start their research ideas.

Applications for the Innovation Community Research Fund Competition will close on Monday, 16 March.

This competition is to give collaborative research projects some kick-starter funding. The funding prize pot is £10,000 to be shared between two to four projects.

To apply, applicants will need to submit an application form which will be peer reviewed by a cross-faculty panel. The shortlisted projects will then be invited to a showcase event on Thursday, 23 April, which will be open to all researchers and staff around the University to attend.
