The Innovative Initiative Fund is open to new applications that relate to the activities of our research themes:
We fund applications with awards of up to £500.
Innovative processes and outputs that link clearly to one or more of our Research Themes will be central to assessing the merit of applications during the 2016-17 academic year.
Applications may include funding for refreshments, but the IIF will not provide funding for the purchase of alcoholic beverages. Therefore, the cost of beverages for drinks receptions will not be funded.
Applications may be made by any postgraduate and undergraduate student at the University of Edinburgh, or by any member of staff of the University of Edinburgh.
The Innovative Initiative Fund is designed to support the activities that contribute to the overall objectives of the Global Justice and Global Development Academies. These objectives are to provide:
Indicative examples of the types of activities that we expect to support include, but are not limited to: roundtables, workshops, hackathons, exhibitions and creative events, and other avenues for knowledge exchange.
All funded initiatives will acknowledge the support of the GJA and GDA, and provide a short report on the activity for dissemination via the Global Academies websites and blog.
Completed forms and any enquiries should be emailed to GlobalJustice@ed.ac.uk
