The call for the first round of pump-priming funds from the RGU Strategic Research Investment is now open. These pump-priming funds may be used to generate preliminary data or outputs to help secure major grant funding from external funding bodies. Each project can request up to £30k. Projects with relevance to business or industry are encouraged. Pump-priming funds cannot be used to buy-out staff time. Preference will be given to inter-disciplinary projects that have the potential to deliver impact and involve early career researchers.
The application form together with guidance on the levels of funding and eligible criteria is available on the RGyoU website.
Please complete the application form by 31st August 2018. For further information please contact Dr Emma Gillibrand, firstname.lastname@example.org, ext.2074
