Funding for research staff collaboration

29 Nov 2023

Application deadline – midnight on Monday, 4 December

The Research Collaboration Fund aims to provide support to research staff to establish a collaborative research project with a cross disciplinary partner.

The fund is an opportunity for research staff to build their interdisciplinary research and develop a collaborative research grant or fellowship application.

Applicants can apply for costs up to a maximum of £5,000. The funds can cover networking costs, workshops costs, staff and consumable costs for feasibility and pilot studies or preliminary research data collection in an interdisciplinary area which has the potential to lead to an external funding bid.

For the purposes of this call research staff are defined as individuals employed on a substantive contract whose primary responsibility is to conduct research and who are usually supported by grants which are of a fixed duration. This includes research assistants, research associates, postdoctoral research associates and research fellows including Presidential Fellows.
