Eligibility: All research staff can apply. Applications can be made by an individual or a group of research staff either within or across departments.
Guidelines: The proposed projects must be of benefit to a group of researchers either within a department or ideally between departments not just the individual(s) making the bid! Collaborative proposals between departments are encouraged. This scheme will not only help you to develop leadership and transferable skills but promote creativity and resourcefulness that will be invaluable in a future academic career.
When preparing your application please consider the following:

NB: The panel does not necessarily expect bids to coverall of these aspects.
The Fund will not cover the costs of:

Successful applications: Successful applicants will be required to present a written summary of the project and its outcomes (no less than one side of A4) within one month of its completion.
