Project Grants

The Proof-of-Concept Project Grants aim to maximise the value of innovative research carried out by academics to explore the translational potential of their ideas. Supporting a multidisciplinary approach to address different challenges, grants of up to £300,000 (plus a contribution to Indirect Costs) were awarded to projects through a competitive process for use over two years.
