This new fund will support interdisciplinary projects that connect to our collaborative research theme for the upcoming 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 initial deadline for submission of proposals is 15 July 2019, but further deadlines will follow on 30 September 2019 and 13 January 2020 for events to be held later in the academic year. Projects will be selected by the Waste Steering Group.
