Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS)


Grants for Research Workshops

The IAS is offering two grants of £2,000 to support teams of researchers who wish to come together for exploratory work on a cross-disciplinary theme or topic.

The idea is that c. £750 of the grant will be spent on employing one or two PhD students to organise up to three workshops for relevant UCL staff and research students; the remainder, up to £1,250, will fund those workshops (invited speakers, catering). 

These workshops are intended to build intellectual community and enable intellectual exchange with a view to generating further grant applications, such as to Grand Challenges or to external funders.  We are looking to create opportunities for people across UCL to explore cutting-edge cross-disciplinary possibilities in an informal format.
