Internal

Sustainable Earth Institute small collaborative awards

The purpose of the small collaborative funding awards is to provide seed funding for multidisciplinary projects which will lead to larger scale funding bids.

In line with the University's 2020 sustainability strategy the call is also intended to encourage multidisciplinary working, a solution orientated approach, engagement with external partners, outputs that improve our communication of sustainability research and outputs that develop long-term impact for our sustainability research.

Visit the Sustainable Earth Institute webpages for further information.
