UCL @ the Crick


Networking Fund

The Crick Partnership Networking Fund supports the development of connections between the four partners (Crick, UCL, Imperial College London and King's), with up to £3k available per project. 

The Fund has been introduced by the Crick and its partner universities (UCL, Imperial and King's) to encourage researchers to network and develop new collaborations across disciplinary boundaries. The most recent call has now closed. Details of the next call will be advertised on this page later in 2019.

The Networking Fund (NF) has been introduced to:

  1. Create and promote a range of opportunities for Crick-HEI researchers to build professional networks within the Partnership and beyond their own discipline. 
  2. Support interdisciplinary researchers to make connections, share and develop ideas and apply for research funding from external sources.
  3. Encourage applications that cross disciplinary boundaries, particularly at the Clinical and Physical Sciences interfaces.
  4. Foster the use, and building, of skills for those directly involved in these funded initiatives (e.g. communication skills, leadership, etc.). 

These projects should primarily benefit the Crick Partnership staff, but networking events could include external contacts from other universities, industry, policy or other organisations where appropriate.
