The Lent Term 2023 call is currently open. Application deadline: 10am, Tuesday 21 February 2023. To download the application form and read full details, visit Applying to the Seed Fund.

The School of Technology Seed Fund aims to support academics in the School to add value to existing research and increasing activity in cross-School strategic research themes and priorities, particularly in addressing major challenges, to bring in further research income or to explore research ideas of potential significance.

To help this the School is making a Seed Fund of £50,000 per year available to be allocated via an Open Call process; applications will be ranked by members of the School Research Committee, with decisions made at the termly Research Committee meetings.

Applications for typically up to £10,000 to cover Direct Costs are invited.

Please visit the page regarding Applying to the Seed Fund for further details.

The lead academic must be based in one of the Departments of the School of Technology.
Applications involving more than one Department, including those from other Schools, are encouraged and will be prioritised.
