College Funding Updates

The College will also be rolling out a Research Adaptation Fund, supported by the Scottish Funding Council Grant, through which individual researchers can apply for support in adapting their research (for example, through research assistance, methods training, or acquiring data). We will be publishing the call in November.

The University will also shortly be issuing a Data Driven Innovation call in early November, for projects of between £10 – 50,000, on the themes of Smarter Places, Health, Wellbeing & Care, Cultural & Creative Recovery, and Food, Climate & Sustainability.
