UCL Institute of Mental Health collaborative grant writing support fund

The Faculty of Brain Sciences is offering small grants of £500 to facilitate collaborative grant writing groups that support the vision of the Institute of Mental Health (IoMH). Applications are welcomed from groups involving researchers from different UCL departments, as well as from outside UCL where applicable, to support the writing of collaborative, cross-specialty grant applications linked to the IoMH research themes. The lead applicant should be a UCL employee. The funds can be used to cover expenses (e.g. travel and refreshments) for meetings to discuss ideas and develop applications.  More...
