This new fund will support interdisciplinary projects that connect to our collaborative research theme for the 2019-20 academic year. Further information about the theme can be found here. Typical projects eligible for funding include:

  • hosting a research conference, a seminar, workshop, or symposium
  • public engagement activities and collaborations with external non-academic institutions

The project needs to commence and its allocated funds be spent within Autumn or Spring Term 2019-20. Funding of up to £2,000 per application is available. There is no minimum limit for awards.

The deadline for submission of proposals has been extended to 5pm on Wednesday 2 October 2019, with a further deadline of 13 January 2020 for events to be held later in the academic year. Projects will be selected by the Waste Steering Group.
